CETC are the first club in Scotland to pilot the on- line Scottish Gymnastics Leadership Course. The number of CETC coaches & gymnasts showing interest enabled 3 courses to be rolled out consecutively over February & March 2021. A 4th on-line course is scheduled for CETC members in April/May.
The course content is designed to be accessible & relevant for any club members, including gymnasts, coaches, committee members & volunteers from age 12 years & up.
The 4 learning outcomes allow participants to explore areas such as understanding self & others, communication, and feedback, planning & review, and finally, leadership into practice.
We are excited that 30 learners have started their journey into leadership and it’s been a great opportunity to facilitate our young people in gaining a transferable qualification for their CV's throughout lockdown. 
Thanks to Fiona Fyfe (tutor & Performance Coach) for facilitating the courses, supported by CETC Head Coach, Lauren Jeffrey.

March Fundraiser - ‘Against Breast Cancer’

CETC normally support a cancer charity each year by holding a fundraising event at the Club. As we are unable to do that this year- we have chosen to support the charity ‘Against Breast Cancer’ during the month of March - & are asking all Club members, families & friends to donate their unwanted bras to help raise vital funds for pioneering breast cancer research.
The same bras also help to support small businesses in Africa. Together with their recycling partners, their textile recovery project prevents these bras going into landfill, before giving them a new lease of life in developing countries such as Togo, Ghana and Kenya, where bras remain too expensive to produce locally.
Successful ventures like this keep many families in developing countries out of poverty whilst providing employment for people at home in the UK.
For every tonne of bras collected, Against Breast Cancer receives £700 to fund their breast cancer research. Donating as many old bras as you can - could really help make a difference!
