GFC partners with The University of Adelaide

The Glenelg Football Club is pleased to announce a partnership with PACE (Professional & Continuing Education) at the University of Adelaide.

The Club will work closely with the PACE to provide both Club personnel and GFC members access to high quality leadership education through various workshops and programs across the season.

Glenelg Football Club CEO Justin Scripps said, “Fundamentally we believe that developing strong leadership capability throughout our Football Club will have a significant impact on building a higher performing culture that will support our continued pursuit for sustainable on-field and off-field success”.

“Our Board, management, coaches and players are excited to partner with one of the most reputable adult education faculties in Australia to develop our people and help grow our culture.”

Relationship Manager Lavender Feng said PACE is looking forward to working with the Club and providing new opportunities for the whole GFC community.

“In a fast-changing world where new industries emerge, ways of accessing and experiencing learning are also evolving,” she said.

“PACE at the University of Adelaide is excited to partner with Glenelg Football Club to provide members with focused, high quality short courses and customised learning programs for a range of personal and professional lifelong educational needs. Through this partnership GFC members will benefit from discounted course fees on a range of high impact courses delivered by expert trainers who are industry professionals.”

The Club will particularly collaborate with Senior Lecturer Lorraine Caruso, who has expertise in leadership, organisational culture and behavioural change.

Lorraine has already made an impact after delivering a number of successful workshops in Darwin when the Club travelled north for the Australia Day clash in January this year.
