This portfolio provides insight into the development of a Caribbean International student on the British Psychological Society (BPS) Professional Doctorate (Prof. Doc.) route of Sport and Exercise Psychology training towards Accreditation and Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) Registration at Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU). The period of enrollment was four years and four months from January 2018 to May 2022 with cumulative programme hours totaling 2874 across the four competencies of: Professional Standards, Consultancy, Research and Dissemination as well as in-depth reflective insight into the Trainee’s development and challenges over this period.

As the Trainee was the first black woman to enroll on a Professional Doctorate in the United Kingdom, the portfolio seeks to raise awareness on that experience to shed light on the contemporary social issues of race and racism in sport, not only at a performance level but professionally as well. The portfolio also details work across varying levels of sport with the completion of three individual case studies (Olympic sprinting, international cricket and elite academy football), one teaching case study (elite youth cricket), a teaching diary, research commentary, a systematic literature review (imagery interventions in youth sport), two empirical studies (postgraduate learning and youth mental skills training) and reflective practice commentary that have further enhanced the Trainee’s professional development while seeking to make novel contributions to advancing the knowledge of Sport and Exercise Psychology in the present day.
