Completing a coaching qualification is a lot more than simply achieving a certificate. The courses will broaden your thinking and bring to life some of the challenges you encounter in your coaching environments, enabling you to discover solutions. Your course is also a great opportunity to meet like-minded coaches and build a future support network to help you to continue to develop beyond the course itself.

Our coaching qualifications are affiliated with British Rowing and provide high quality courses for all. To find out more about coaching courses, please visit the British Rowing website:

sportscotland Subsidy

Scottish Rowing coaches qualify for sportscotland financial support to coaches to help meet the cost of coach education qualifications via application-based subsidies. The subsidy application process is open to both newcomers to coaching and those already on the coaching pathway. Applicants will be able to apply for subsidies upon completion of their coaching course assessment. For more information, please visit the sportscotland website:


Local Authority Coach Education Funding

Some Local Authorities offer additional funding to help towards the cost of your coaching qualification if you aim to coach at a club within the local authority area upon completion of your qualification – some offer as much as 75% towards the cost of your course.

In many cases, a funding application form must be submitted in advance of the course and the applicant/club must pay for the course up front. If successful in obtaining funding either you or your club will receive the funding once the course has been completed and proof of attendance and success submitted.

Please refer to your relevant Local Authority sports development website for further information. If you have any questions please contact Andy Barton, Workforce Development Manager:
