Diploma in Sporting Excellence applications are now open.
The programme is run as part of the Athlete Development Programme. The majority of the programme will be delivered through 20-25 contact days at weekends or in school holidays so fencers are able to stay at their school or college. There will also be online delivery and assessment. Open to fencers who have just finished GCSEs and resident in England, the programme is a good chance to do a course which earns UCAS points for university application.
The programme will begin in October 2020 and run as an 18-month programme, finishing in February 2022.
The minimum fencing standard is top 40 on any national ranking list, or similar evidence of competitive success.
