Kaderschmiede , derived from Kader , are often colloquially called educational institutions in which later members of a power elite , for example in politics or economics , usually study. Top universities in particular are often referred to as cadre schools.
It is also used analogously in sport, where the term squad is also common. Sports universities , sports high schools in early intervention and military sports facilities , in which active competitive athletes also have normal professional security, can be regarded as “sporting cadre schools” , but also institutions such as La Masia of FC Barcelona .
