The Advanced Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence (AASE) Programme is designed to meet the needs of young people, aged between 16 and 18, who have the potential to achieve excellence in sport, while pursuing an education at the same time.
The HENLEY College presently runs the scheme in three sports: Rugby Union and Basketball in partnership with London Wasps and Reading Rockets, and rowing in partnership with Leander Club Henley.
The AASE framework has been developed by SkillsActive, in partnership with a number of sports governing bodies, industry experts and other partnership organisations.
Full time students at the College are able to take part in these sports apprenticeships which combine a technical certificate (A Level or Diploma), with a Level 3 Certificate in achieving excellence in Sports Performance and Functional skills.
Applications to join the course will be by invitation.
