Scholarship Athlete at The University of Birmingham
"...They helped me feel fully prepared and confident about my long term career ahead. I worked with my advisor who helped me understand my strengths gained from elite sport, and importantly how to talk about them effectively during interview stages, to help employers recognise I have something different to offer, against other strong candidates with very high academic backgrounds..."

"...The-Transition-Phase help you to identify your strengths, but importantly how you can really transfer these in to a business environment. They not only helped me prepare for life after sport, but they continue to work with me through my journey with advice and support, which is honest and structured. But I think what is key about the initiative, is it's focus and dedication to put the athlete's long term career at it's heart. Athletes have a unique skill set, that can offer real diversity which in my opinion, businesses should look to take advantage of and it's great that TTP are helping spread this message..."

"..Not everyone will be fortunate enough to have the people I had to support me through this transition, so something like The Transition Phase is exactly what athletes can benefit from and utilise.."
