Active Schools is accepting applications from new S5/6 pupils at Arran High School for the North Ayrshire Sports Academy (NASA) 20/21.

NASA is a year-long leadership, sports coach education and personal development programme that will boost pupils’ CVs and give them invaluable voluntary experience.

All details are on the application form and the closing date for applications is Sunday June 21.

Upon receipt of applications, up to 12 selected candidates per secondary school will be invited to be part of a series of Zoom calls which will form an alternative to the normal selection process.

All candidates will be assessed on reliability, attitude and suitability for a place on the NASA course. Up to six pupils per secondary school will be selected for the course.
