Leadership Academy

Scottish Gymnastics is committed to supporting clubs to be the best they can be and assisting them in achieving their ambitions. To do this people are at the heart.

We believe that investing in people is critical to support clubs on their journey and to help them face the future confidently. And that is why we introduced the Leadership Academy.

The Scottish Gymnastics 12-month Leadership Academy programme has been designed with club leaders in mind, and focuses on the behaviours and skills needed to be effective in your role to lead your club to success.

Facilitated by the Scottish Gymnastics development team, it is delivered in partnership with a range of external speakers, who bring knowledge and expertise from the world of sport and business to challenge and inspire our leaders to be the best they can be. 

We have successfully run this programme for two years and you can watch the video below to find out what others have taken from the course and see if it’s for you.

Over the year candidates benefit from workshop sessions, inspiring leaders events, e-learning, mentoring, networking support and leave the programme with a personal development plan. You just need to bring some enthusiasm and a willingness to learn!

Club Business Manager, Jacqui Stone, said: “I have loved watching how the leaders over the last couple of programmes have grown and developed their confidence and skills and it is exciting to see who will come through the programme next.”

Applications for 2019 are now open.
