This unit provides an opportunity for students to investigate the physical activity, exercise and health industry and explore key organisations involved in the field. Students will learn about physical activity participation amongst a number of sub-groups within the population, and, from an employment perspective, locate, investigate and critically analyse key roles in the industry that aim to promote physical activity and exercise in those sub-groups. Students will use their investigation of the physical activity and exercise industry to explore potential career pathways and areas of future employment interest. Students will identify individual skills and strengths they bring to the field, as well as areas for self- and career development.
