Further Education can be the ideal setting for intra-mural, social basketall as driven by the IM Basketball
There are also many ways in which students can be involved in the sport outside of playing.
England Basketball can provide resources for courses in refereeing, table officiating, coaching as well as young leaders awards. These courses can be linked in with a student's studies.
SkillsActive in partnership with the Learning Skills Council, a number of governing bodies of sport, industry experts and other partnership organisations, developed the Advanced Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence (AASE). The framework was approved in March 2004 and has been rolled out across a number of sports such as football, rugby union, swimming, basketball, golf, hockey and athletics.
The AASE is designed to meet the needs of elite athletes aged 16-18 who wish to continue their sporting career and gain qualifications at the same time. The AASE is not a qualification for simply playing the game. It is notionally a two-year programme where Apprentices receive additional support and guidance for their basketball development and education.
