How sport can improve the employability of our students

Friday 27th June, 10:10 to 10:50


Matthew Stone (CUSU Sport and Wellbeing Officer)

This short presentation, followed by discussion, will illustrate the potential impact of engagement in sport on graduate employability. The session will engage participants by illustrating how students’ participation in sport may lead them to being less likely to experience unemployment and more likely to secure higher career earnings.

The session will refer to the recently published research conducted by the Sport Industry Research Centre at Sheffield Hallam University into ‘the impact of Engagement in Sport on Graduate Employability’. Coventry University Students’ Union (CUSU) Sport and Wellbeing Officer, Matthew Stone, will outline the current provision of sport at Coventry University, how it is structured and how Coventry students perform against their peers nationally.  The session will also explore how the provision of sport has developed at Coventry in the past few years and how CUSU see the future of sport in the University.

The session is for people who are curious about the impact that participation in sport can have upon students. It is hoped that participants will leave the session with the aim of promoting forthcoming plans to develop Faculty sport.
