This framework was developed at the request of employers in the Football and Rugby Industries in Scotland to meet the needs of the Clubs and young professional football and rugby players.
This Framework will be fully reviewed within six months.
A mandatory entry requirement for this Modern Apprenticeship is that the individual meets a definition of a “talented player”, using the Scottish Football Association and Scottish Rugby Union defined criteria as a quality standard.
This MA is available only to individuals that meet these requirements and who are within the Scottish Football Association/ Scottish Rugby Union membership and competition structures. This MA is not available to individuals who do not meet the requirements, or sit outside the SFA/ SRU structure.
More information about the industry can be found on the SkillsActive website.
