Australian College of Physical Education and ActiveXchange announce partnership agreement
April 29, 2021

The Australian College of Physical Education (ACP) and ActiveXchange, have announced a partnership that will see the award-winning data company create unique learning and development opportunities for students.

Initially, this will include ActiveXchange playing an active role in the Sports Business (Leadership) Degree while, in addition to student learning opportunities, ActiveXchange will also be bringing some of the leading minds in sport to ACPE’s campus for their regular industry forums and cross-industry steering groups.

Students and staff of ACPE will have the opportunity to network and learn from individuals and groups who are leading positive change for the sector in both NSW and Australia, in collaboration with ActiveXchange.

James Ellender, ACPE Alumni and Chief Executive of ActiveXchange, explained “ActiveXchange is thrilled to be partnering with ACPE, putting award winning data analysts at the fingers tips of students to understand contemporary approaches to helping Sports grow participation, understand and demonstrate community impact, and better govern and advocate for their sport.

“As we continue to commit to empowering a truly connected network, we see this partnership as a significant opportunity to directly impact sports in NSW through the course program.”

Dr Tilda Khoshaba, Head of ACPE’s Department of Sports Business, added “ACPE is proud to announce our ground-breaking partnership with ActiveXchange which will not only provide our students with the opportunity to engage in real sports projects but allows them to access exciting internship opportunities within the sports industry.

“Active Exchange is showcasing the critical importance of analytics in the sports industry and working with such an organisation again reinforces the commitment of ACPE to be at the cutting edge of sports education in Australia”.

ActiveXchange and ACPE will also be collaborating on several initiatives and projects in 2021 that aim to bring further value to the wider ACPE community through access to contemporary learning approaches, ground-breaking technologies and industry collaborations.

ActiveXchange, founded in 2018, is at the forefront of empowering data to shape a more informed and connected sports sector.

Through powering the national infrastructure database, predictive modelling and cross-industry steering groups, ActiveXchange hold a clear line of sight on how to maximise participation outcomes, commercial returns, and social value impacts.
