Launched in 2005 by the International Olympic Committee, the Athlete Career Programme (ACP) helps Olympic and Elite athletes successfully manage the difficult transition from elite sport to a new career through professional development and job placement.  By the end of 2011, the programme had supported more than 9,000 athletes in over 40 countries and five continents with training opportunities and job placements.
