Dual Career Accreditation Scheme

The TASS Dual Career Accreditation Scheme invites education institutions – colleges and sixth forms, as well as universities – to apply to become TASS Dual Career Accredited Centres.

These centres are assessed based on their ability to support talented athletes on the academic side of their development, rather than on core service delivery, like TASS’ existing Delivery Sites.

The Scheme expects an enhanced level of academic flexibility and understanding that allows talented athletes to balance their studies with a hectic sporting schedule.

Accreditation benefits the institution by formally recognising their commitment to supporting student-athletes, subsequently having the potential to attract future talent.

The first sixth forms and colleges achieved Accreditation in 2016/17, with many more across the country that are currently ‘working towards’ the Accredited status.

Furthermore, following a pilot with six universities, a number of HE institutions have now met the criteria and are recognised as TASS Dual Career Accredited Sites.

If you feel that the TASS Dual Career Accreditation is of interest to your institution and reflects your institution’s ethos, mission statement and culture then please contact Kirsty O’Connor kirsty.oconnor@tass.gov.uk.
