As you may be aware from previous communications, scottishathletics recently launched the first ever national governing body National Club Leaders’ Academy for Scottish athletics clubs.
This innovative course, designed in partnership with GBSport and approved by the Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM), will help club leaders develop a broader understanding of business within a club context, develop their skills as leaders and will provide a strong emphasis on practice-based learning.
Mark Munro, Interim CEO & Head of Development has led the development of the programme.
‘scottishathletics is absolutely committed to ensuring that club volunteers and club staff are supported to run clubs as effectively as possible,’ said Mark.
