BASES aims to work with a variety of stakeholders within the sport and exercise industry to support our objectives and effectively represent the interests of our members. One of the ways we do this is by signing a 'Memodandum of Understanding' (MoU) or 'Memorandum of Collaboration' (MoC) with organisations that share our values and strategic objectives.
BASES has a Memorandum of Collaboration with the British Olympic Association (BOA), which aims to improve the sports science service provided to current and potential Olympic athletes and coaches by developing a formal working relationship between BASES and the BOA.
The aim of the Memorandum of Collaboration is to enhance the developing alliance between the BASES and the British Psychological Society (BPS) by presenting a formal working relationship between BASES and the BPS. BASES and the Division of Sport and Exercise Psychology Section (DSEP) of the BPS share common goals of promoting excellence in research, teaching and practical applications in sport and exercise psychology.
BASES signed a Memorandum of Understanding with CIMSPA in January 2018, formally recognising a shared commitment to developing a fit for purpose professional standards framework for the sport and physical activity sector. The MoU aims to provide clarity about the role of both professional bodies in the development and implementation of professional standards and the application of degree endorsement schemes to support sector workforce development.
The partnership affirms BASES status as the leading authority for professional standards in sport and exercise science occupations and reinforces the role of BASES accreditations and BASES degree endorsement scheme (BUES) in maintaining high standards of excellence in sport and exercise science.
This Memorandum of Collaboration has been signed by the Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA), the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) and Sport and Exercise Science New Zealand (SESNZ). The MoC outlines specific initiatives that will enhance the mutual activities of each organization and foster co-operation in an international context for the benefit of all professions and professionals involved within the respective organizations.
