The Diploma of Sport Development reflects the role of individuals who apply the skills and knowledge to pursue a range of roles within the Australian sport industry.
They work or volunteer at community-based sport clubs and organisations in the Australian sport industry.
Individuals with this qualification are involved in the self-directed application of knowledge and skills, and the provision of leadership and support to colleagues. They work autonomously and coordinate and supervise others.
