AASE Programme

British Judo runs a bespoke Advanced Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence (AASE). The programme runs from eight Performance Pathway Centres within England and will offer the opportunity for players to increase their weekly training volume while working towards a vocational qualification that is now recognised by UCAS. AASE is designed to support and complement a player’s club and area training.

Players must be a minimum of 16 years of age with English & Maths GCSE’s (C minimum) to qualify for the course. Those without the required grades may be considered if they opt in to resit the exams or complete Key Skills certificates.

The British Judo AASE programme is a key part of the British Judo Performance Pathway and technical & physical delivery will soon be linked to the British Judo Trademark model.

The seven Performance Pathway Centres that run the AASE programme are:

Venue Open Day Times
