Term 2 is in full swing with lots of exciting things coming this way for Diploma of Sport/Diploma of Leadership and Management (SIS50319/BSB50420) students.
This term sees students further connecting with one another inside and outside of a classroom setting, and constant new and exciting placements becoming available.
Current students from the cohort have had great things to say about the strong friendships made within only a term in the course.
“The friendships I have already made during my time plays a part in my enjoyment during of course.
I love being a social person so getting to meet a wide range of people and learning about them and their journey prior to RISL has been awesome, and definitely makes the course more appealing and exciting” says a student.
Connections are vital for success and allow students to thrive within the course. They work closely with each other and form relationships for future endeavours and possible later employment.
Furthermore, strong connections and relationships aren’t just forming student to student. Students are encouraged to ‘connect to thrive and win’ and network with their teachers and wider Richmond Football Club staff.
The staff here at Richmond Institute are a key support system for students and always offer support to ensure that everyone is working to the best of their ability and achieve all their desired goals both academically and personally.
It’s a testament to the course and the teachers – the level of care they show is on another level.
Differing to other courses, Richmond Institute invests time in having successful and professionally capable graduates with a qualification, rather than solely walking away with a dual diploma.
Richmond Institute also offers to provide students with industry professionals and guest speakers like Kate Palmer, who has been an advocate for women playing and working within the sporting industry.
Kate sharing her experience with students and how she got to where she is currently was an incredible experience.
Another student commended the experience they’ve has so far at the course.
“I’ve really enjoyed hearing from industry professionals who’ve helped me clarify my goals for this year and beyond” they said.
There is guaranteed to be much more coming for students to immerse themselves into in the coming months!
