Skaters will undertake continual assessments against the criteria set out within the levels of the NISA Level Plan. Once a Skater has demonstrated a satisfactory level of competency in all elements of the criteria then they will be recommended to progress to the next level within the programme (this will be facilitated subject to the availability of suitable space).
