Application Process

Are you ready to join the SLP?

The Sports Leadership Programme is designed to further develop your existing capabilities and help you succeed in your role in a sports environment. Participating in this programme requires self-reflection and a keen interest in personal development – because understanding yourself, your values and your behaviours is essential to becoming a better leader and achieving your goals.

Admission Requirements

Admissions are highly selective and based on personal interviews. To be considered for this programme, you must meet the following requirements:

  • You are currently active in sport, for example as a coach, working for a sports association or similar organisation, or have a strong, concrete ambition to be professionally involved in the sports world.
  • You have completed higher professional education and/or have experience working at that level.
  • You are prepared to go on a personal development journey and are open to reflecting on who you are.
  • You are at least 30 years old.

Application procedure

  • To apply for the Sports Leadership Programme, please send your curriculum vitae and a short motivation letter describing why you want to be included in the programme (see green button below).
  • After you send your application, you will receive an email with additional details and an invitation for an interview.
  • If the first interview demonstrates that you meet the admission requirements, you will be invited for a second interview with the Programme Director, Bartel Berkhout.
  • Following this final interview, you will be informed whether you have been selected to participate in the programme.
