Scottish Borders Campus
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.
