東方體育會嶺南大學合作培訓教練人才

專業人才求過於供 運動教練及體適能課程出路廣

注入領袖學 運動管理新概念

 

新課程照顧社會所需 2015

學院在開放日當天設有攤位和講座,向參加者介紹課程的內容和特色。學院又邀請了資深傳媒工作者鄭明仁,香港足總技術顧問郭家明,曉光護老服務集團行政總裁陳盛德和保健員蘇家譽,以及香港黃金海岸酒店總經理韓鵬程主持就業專題講座,向有意報讀的高中學生提供最新的市場就業資訊。

郭家明表示,現時香港欠缺培訓運動教練的課程,學院的課程正好補足康體政策和業界的人才需求,「運動教練及領袖學高級 文憑的畢業生可謂不愁出路,無論本港或內地對這類人才的需求都很大,如學校和康體場所也很需要教練指導課餘活動。就連施政報告也宣布委派民政事務局負責體育政策的副秘書長擔任『體育專員』,統籌和協調跨局或跨部門的體育工作,可見機遇處處。」 ​

​此課程理論及實用並重,除了提供個人及團隊運動教練的整全培訓外,還設有不少於200小時的實習機會,裝備其日後在體育活動和管理工作上,發展長遠的事業。
