About us

Who We are

Science & Sport is a registered association which aims to promote sports, health and education. Now in our 7th year, our passion has always been to deliver quality training to athletes in Seychelles and France, helping them reach unimaginable levels of performance.

For the first time ever, we are professionalizing sports in Seychelles through the CQP (Certificat Qualification Professionelle) and BPJEPS certificate (Brevet Professionnel de la Jeunesse, de l'Éducation Populaire et du Sport) sports certification programs.

Our programs which are certified by the french qualification authority (and the Seychelles Qualification Authority, subject to their authorisation) have been built to certify in a short amount of time. Begin your career in sports after as little as 160 hours (15 days) of training! Or enroll on our BPJEPS program with only 1200 hours (1 year) of training, giving you the skills you need to train high-level athletes, or manage a team or sports project. Get fast tracked with these certificates in hand, to pursue your career in higher-level studies related to health, education and specific disciplines in sports.
