Skills Funding update
In 2018, coaches registered as Scottish Gymnastics members could receive up to £200 from Skills Development Scotland towards levels 1, 2 and 3 coaching courses.
Due to changes in the 2019/20 Operational Rules published by Skills Development Scotland, Scottish Gymnastics is not enrolling in the scheme and therefore this funding stream will not be available for coaches from immediate effect.
Please note; this funding is completely separate from the sportscotland UKCC subsidy, and coaches are encouraged to continue to apply as per eligibility and relevant guidelines above.
