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.  


There have been three sets of leaders go through this programme and you can watch the video below to find out what some of them have taken from the course. 

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.  

Club Business Manager, Jacqui Stone, said: “Delivering on the Leadership Academy is the best part of my job! I get to see real change with the leaders from day one to the end of the 12 months. Every time we go through it I learn more new things too and it is a pleasure to have such quality speakers join us as inspiration. If you are interested in personal development this is definitely the opportunity you are looking for.”
