Coach Education

Coach Education Documents 2013-2014

The role of the coach at all levels of sport is crucial, regardless of what age and stage you coach. Your contribution to the development of athletics and the opportunities you provide is inspiring, whether you are supporting aspiring young athletes to achieve their goals or working with talented performers in their pursuit of excellence. You make an invaluable contribution to athletics in Scotland.

If our national level athletes are to contend for success on the international stage then coaches must have the support of a well-structured, resourced and effective coaching system within the best environment possible. This can only be achieved by providing a clearly structured programme of ongoing development for coaches, whether this is through the qualifications pathway or a comprehensive CPD programme.

The Coach Scholarship Scheme offers financial support to coaches/umpires within the Scottish Borders. It has been introduced to encourage new people to get involved in coaching and umpiring, as well as motivating existing coaches to progress their careers by awarding financial support.
