Positive Coaching Scotland (PCS) Programme in association with the Bill McLaren Foundation
The process starts with a leaders’ workshop, with representatives from all levels within the club/school.

The initial workshop lasts two hours. It focuses on formalising the identity of the club or school, and the more people that contribute and buy into this the better.
It’s important to look at the rugby environment from all possible angles, taking into account all the resources and stakeholders. The best way to set up a solid starting point is to speak to the core people first. These are the people who take responsibility and make things happen, so it is important that they attend.
They need to understand why the club or school is taking part and the importance of their contribution to the process. We then want to put out an open invitation to all volunteers by working through this core group of people.
This leaders’ workshop needs to land in the diary of a programme tutor and, for that reason, we suggest the following steps in setting up the workshop:
At the end of this workshop an internal programme leader will be selected. To get started or for any further questions email firstname.lastname@example.org
