Paul Wheeler

Programme Leader for Sport Management (Business) | +44 (0) 1243 816319

Currently working at the University of Chichester and teaching across several degree programmes delivered by the Institute of Sport.

As the coordinator for the Sport Business and Management degree my duties include the recruitment, management, monitoring of students on the degree, together with mentoring of my academic advisees. I have recently been heavily involved with the re-design of the new, from 2020, Sport Management degree.

As the timetable coordinator, it is my role to ensure that the teaching spaces, patterns and staffing details that are required to deliver the teaching across several undergraduate degrees are identified and processed. This includes constant liaison between staff and the central timetabling team.

I perform liaison with community groups and partnerships to provide them with expert sport management knowledge that will assist them in the operation and organisation of projects and facilities.

I am part of various sports related research projects, independently and in collaboration with colleague within this university, other universities and non-academics.
