Carmel College is proud to be a Dual Career Accredited provider of the Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS).

TASS accreditation is acknowledgement of how we support our talented athletes to succeed in their sport, whilst excelling in their studies.

The TASS Programmme provides our high performing athletes with 1-1 mentor meetings with the Dual Career Co-ordinator and sports staff. Students receive guidance and their progress is closely monitored. Students also attend sports related workshops with professionals and other elite performers. These workshops provide advice and encouragement to support their progress.

In 2018-19 our athletes attended workshops and seminars with themes including sports nutrition, hydration and sports scholarships. Students also took part in practical workshops during visits to local universities and elite sport facilities.

If you are a Talented Athlete looking to study A Level or Level 3 BTEC courses in the North West of England, contact us on or visit us at one of our Open Events for more information about the support available.
