Leadership Academy

Scottish Gymnastics is committed to ensuring staff and volunteers are supported to run clubs as effectively as possible. We recognise the sporting landscape is constantly changing and the pressures and challenges facing clubs are significant.

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 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 its for you. Applications for this programme are currently closed.

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.”
