Borders Academy of Sporting Excellence (BASE) supports 'talented' performers to develop their individual skills and performance alongside their academic studies. The course has some common element with other level 6 Sport & Fitness courses but is built around a National Progression Award (NPA) in Achieving Excellence in Sport, covering: Analysis of performance; Behaviours of elite Athletes; and Performance improvement programmes. It is a full time course, with 3 days per week in college (for classes and strength & conditioning) and 2 days expert tuition. The expert tuition is normally delivered in conjunction with Scottish Rugby's Academy programme; applicants from other sports are welcomed.
