In 2018 ESSA is conducting a Future Workforce Report across the spectrum of ESSA professionals and the broader exercise and sports science industry.

 

The Future Workforce Report project aims to develop a report that:

  • strategically guides ESSA activities to optimise industry profile and positioning,
  • provides visionary influence that inspires members, and the profession more broadly, to prepare for and embrace change and reform within the broader Australian health, sport and wellbeing sectors.

 

The final report will identify future trends that will influence exercise and sports science professional practice. This will ensure that opportunities within the industry are capitalised upon and challenges are foreseen and prepared for accordingly.

 

This forum is an opportunity for ESSA members and accredited professionals to listen to the project’s objectives, stakeholders being consulted and the future trends and direction of the industry and to discuss the ESSA membership consultation process throughout the 2018 project.
