Following the statement from the UK & Scottish Government yesterday evening, scottishathletics recommend all face-to-face education activity delivered by scottishathletics (coach, official, teacher, club etc) will cease until further clarity is provided.

At this stage scottishathletics has decided to re-schedule all Coach and Official education, development courses and workshops that are planned until the end of April 2020.

If you are booked onto a course during this period you will receive an email with further information on this situation.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and hope that you will still consider a coaching or officiating qualification in Athletics in the future.


 Coaches are vital to our sport. Without the commitment of those who choose to guide and train athletes of all ages, abilities and disciplines, athletics simply would not exist.

The backbone of the coach’s journey is formed by the UKA qualifications that we offer around the country. Courses are available for everyone from complete beginners (such as the Jog Leader or Leading Athletics courses) to the most experienced.

New Coach Qualification Pathway

For those who are already qualified, we offer a wide range of CPD opportunities to help you improve your skills and experience.

You can explore all our coaching qualifications and CPD resources using the menus on the left of this page.
