Borders Academy of Sporting Excellence (BASE) supports sports performers to develop their individual skills and sports 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 that includes specialised strength and conditioning session. The expert tuition is normally delivered in partnership with Scottish Rugby's Pathway programme; applicants from other sports are welcomed.

Upon completing the programme you will achieve NPA Exercise and Fitness Leadership and NPA Achieving Excellence in Sport.
