Sport Development Program

KTTC Sport Development Program

KTTC’s new Sport Development Program will launch in 2024, designed for sports enthusiasts passionate about pursuing a career in the diverse industry of sport.

The two-year program offers Year 11 and 12 students an alternative pathway. Through an engaging blend of certificate and diploma qualifications, hands-on sports experiences and collaboration with industry experts, students will engage in dynamic and transformative senior schooling.

Graduating students will not be eligible for a Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE), but they will have the skills and qualifications to commence work or undertake additional tertiary studies through direct entry to Gold Coast universities.

The Sport Development Program operates four days off-site and students must have their own transport to the venue. Year 11 students will attend Reedy Creek campus on Friday morning with the option to participate in APS sport in the afternoon. Year 12 students are encouraged to gain paid employment or industry placement on Fridays to add their education qualifications.

Sport Development Program students who complete the full two year program* will graduate with the following qualifications:

  • Certificate II Sport & Recreation
  • Certificate II Outdoor Recreation
  • Certificate II Coaching
  • Certificate III Fitness
  • Officiating
