What is AASE?
AASE is a Government funded initiative that has been designed to meet the needs of young people (aged 16-18) who have the realistic potential to achieve excellence in their sport and are seeking to perform at the highest level as their main career goal, whilst continuing with their education. Notionally taking two years to complete, the AASE framework will provide for the first time a structured national training and development route across all sports for talented young athletes, many of whom may go on to represent their country on the world stage.
The apprenticeship is the first to offer elite and potentially elite athletes to achieve proper recognition of the skills, knowledge and understanding they are developing/gaining in their quest for excellence.
NVQ Level 3 Achieving Excellence in Sports Performance (Sports Specific)
This qualification recognises excellence in a specific sport. The NVQ is made up of 8 sport specific units: To gain the full NVQ all eight mandatory units must be achieved. The England Talent Team delivers the NVQ Level 3. Edexcel awards this qualification. The NVQ will be delivered at training, competitions, AASE Workshops/Camps and Online.
This NVQ is specifically designed for elite athletes to help them achieve success within their sport and hopefully achieve a World Class status. The NVQ is rewarding and beneficial to all those selected to come onto the programme.
The NVQ is all about being an elite athlete and it is broken into 8 units that cover important factors of an elite athlete’s life.
Skills Active will award the overall apprenticeship after all 3 components have been completed.
Employers and Universities such as Loughborough, Bath, Manchester Metropolitan and Leeds Metropolitan have signed up to recognise the AASE programme when considering individuals for places on courses. Many other universities will have an AASE recognition scheme within the next two years.
