Wellbeing Learning and Development Framework

The Learning and Development Framework is the structure that houses all of the wellbeing programs and opportunities that are available to categorised athletes covering mental health, community engagement, career and education and professional development.

The Learning and Development Framework is built around three key pillars which represent the different aspects of wellbeing that an athlete should ideally experience to help them succeed in a high performance setting. These experiences can be personalised to suit an athlete's  preferred learning journey.

  • LEARN: To experience a sense of learning, advancement, achievement, personal growth and purpose in life
  • THRIVE: To experience hope, energy, resilience, self- awareness and self-acceptance, autonomy and environmental mastery
  • CONTRIBUTE: To experience the satisfaction of helping others and the active involvement of positive relationships
