SSWAC, Warspite and Ajax Sea Scouts have provisionally organised a  Paddlesports Instructor course. This does not link to a permit direct but is an NGB Award from British Canoeing.
Dates are 22/23rd June
We have up to 12 places
This course replaced the Level 1 Coach qualification. It is now only 1 weekend.
The British Canoeing Paddlesports Instructor is a Nationally Recognised Award aimed at providing a first instructing qualification.
It is aimed supporting the instructor with practical skills such as kitting up a group and getting afloat, initial familiarisation activities, games and activities to support learning and how to use mini journeys to support learning, inspire adventure and exploration.  This will be enhanced with support on how these sessions can be delivered in a way that is enjoyable, safe and rewarding.
The process of completing the qualification aims to help prepare candidates for their first paddlesport instructing role; ‘primed and ready’.  
Who can do it:
The Course will run at Warspite Ajax Scout Boating Centre, Thames Ditton. It is non residential
Who is running the course:
The course will be run by Escape Outdoors - an outside coaching company.
