AFL SportsReady’s Year in Review

AFL SportsReady’s Year in Review

2013 proved to be another record breaking year at AFL SportsReady, with the team delivering more opportunities for young trainees and students than ever before. 

Our highlights included; 

  • A total of 642 trainees were employed across Australia. This includes 225 Indigenous trainees, a 135% increase on our 2011/12 results.
  • 900 students studied with SportsReady Education, including 187 AFL players.
  • We established partnership agreements with a number of Universities across Australia including La Trobe University, Griffith University, Curtin University, Flinders University, University of Canberra and the University of Tasmania to provide a further pathway for our students.
  • 168 of our trainees worked in the AFL industry across Australia.  
  • We delivered a range of Indigenous Employment services to ANZ, NAB, CBA, Australia Post, Westpac and Telstra.
  • With a $3.4m investment from the Federal Government over four years, we launched ArtsReady and began delivering traineeships in the arts and creative industries across the ACT, Victoria and New South Wales, with a rollout planned for Western Australia, Tasmania, Queensland and South Australia in late 2014. 
  • We developed a partnership with YMCA Victoria, to deliver their leadership and management education. 
  • Our partnership with the Collingwood Football Club Foundation has resulted in our National Office at Victoria Park having access to a new 50 seat lecture theatre, classroom facilities and a computer lab for our students.

The AFL SportsReady team would like to thank all our current partners, hosts and trainees for their commitment and ongoing support. These partnerships are critical to the success of our organisation and to help us accomplish goals that would otherwise be unattainable.
