There are different routes you can take to gain qualifications.
We have a Sport and Physical Activity Training Programme where we offer coaching courses locally, most of these are free of charge with an expectation that the candidate will deliver time in Midlothian. The courses are suitable for a range of individuals such as coaches, volunteers, school staff and senior pupils. The training programme can be downloaded below along with the booking form.
Midlothian Council have a grants support scheme to help develop the local sporting workforce and arrangements can also be made to repay the cost of external coaching through volunteering time to one of our programmes.
For more information contact a member of our Active Schools, Sports Development or Community Sport Hub Teams.
