There have been changes made to UKCC subsidy funding for 2017-18 in direct response to a decrease in National Lottery investment.
sportscotland are committed to supporting coaches at all levels and therefore have spread the reduction across all levels of the coaching pathway.
Scottish Gymnastics understand that this will likely have a significant impact on our coaches and we are committed to working closely with you to ensure we implement these changes in the smoothest way possible.
THE CHANGES ARE AS FOLLOWS AS OF 1 JUNE 2017
- UKCC L1 grant aid to be 40% of total cost or £75 (whichever is the lowest). Therefore, coaches will receive £75 subsidy (a reduction of £25 (previously £100))
- UKCC L2 grant aid to be 60% of total cost or £350 (whichever is the lowest). Therefore, coaches will receive £312 subsidy (a reduction of £52 (previously £364))
- Any UKCC applications which have already been received by sportscotland (prior to the four week deadline and with the course held before 1 June 2017) will be processed with the existing level of subsidy.
- Applications which are already in the system and are for courses after 1 June 2017 will be processed on the new level of subsidy.
