Hyundai Research Institute: Developing the next generation of sports leaders

Hyundai Research Institute (HRI) provides programs which develop global education and business strategies. HRI is the first Korean research institute to integrate education and research functions where new knowledge can be created and shared effectively.

This year, HRI is working closely with both primary and secondary sports coaches, through their Global Hyundai Research Development Centre (HRD). Global HRD aims to assist these sports coaches, through the use of Australian coaching methodologies, encourage Korean youth to get more actively involved in sport. 

The Institute of Continuing & TESOL Education (ICTE) is pleased to collaborate with the Global HRD Centre to deliver a professional customised training program for sports leaders. The program aims to help participants acquire advanced teaching techniques, and strengthen leadership skills.


Participants working out a sports plan 

The training program attracted the interest of 20,000 applicants from across South Korean, and 10 applicants were shortlisted for the prestigious program held at The University of Queensland (UQ) in Brisbane, Australia. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from UQ’s leading academics in the sporting and health science arena, and engage in interactive workshops designed to introduce the Australian sport and coaching industry.

Participants will also have the opportunity to experience one of Brisbane’s best sporting high schools, St Laurence’s College. This school observation is dedicated to the College’s co-curricular sports program, designed to facilitate the exchange of teaching strategies and practical approaches to physical education in Australia.

We hope the participants enjoy their time in Brisbane and look forward to future collaborations with the Hyundai Research Institute.

Thank you to our supporting UQ organisations: UQ Football Club, UQ Rugby Club and UQ’s School of Human Movement and Nutrition Sciences for contributing to this program.
