Wests Tigers partner with ACPE

Wests Tigers are pleased to announce a new corporate partnership with the Australian College of Physical Education (ACPE), which sees ACPE become the official Education Partner of Wests Tigers.

The one-year deal will see Wests Tigers work alongside Australia’s oldest independent specialist higher education provider on a number of different education programs while delivering increased educational opportunities for players, staff, members and fans alike.

As the club’s Official Education Partner, ACPE will work closely with Wests Tigers players — offering information sessions around career opportunities and development — while also providing the club’s football and administration staff with access to a range of specialist short courses to ensure they are provided with leading personal development resources.

In addition, the partnership will also provide a number of opportunities for students within the club’s region with special events and networking opportunities, including the club’s industry-leading Careers Assemblies and seminars.

ACPE students will in turn benefit from internship opportunities and collaboration on practical research projects with Wests Tigers High Performance department, as well as other professional experiences, while dance students will also see increased opportunities for development through collaboration with the Wests Tigers Dance Squad.


Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe welcomed the new partnership.

“As a club we’re always striving to be innovators and this is an exciting partnership for both Wests Tigers and a leading education provider in ACPE,” Pascoe said.

“Not only will this provide clear benefits for Wests Tigers players and staff, as well as increased opportunities for ACPE students, the partnership will allow all students within the Wests Tigers region to benefit as we continue our strong community involvement.”

ACPE CEO and Dean Debbie Le Roux said the partnership would open up a number of exciting new opportunities for the respective organisations.

“We’re delighted to partner with Wests Tigers and provide a range of shared opportunities for both organisations in advancing the interests of sport and quality education,” Le Roux said. “There are strong synergies between our organisations, and we look forward to seeing the fruits of this collaboration moving forward.

“Given our shared passion for sport and commitment to excellence, we have no doubt that this partnership will be a fruitful one to positively impact the lives of the Wests Tigers players, coaches and students alike.”

ACPE will serve as the official Match Day Partner in the club’s Round 20 home match against the New Zealand Warriors with a special “Student Night” ticket offer to come.
