Paddlesports Instructor

The BC's new Coaching Awards have been updated and developed to meet the needs of today's coaches and to provide them with better recognition within the UK sports industry. These developments have been based on findings from both the Paddlesport Review and Long term Paddler Development Review and reflect current best practice within UK paddlesport and coaching.

The result is a dynamic coaching pathway which benefits both recreational and competition coaches and their students, providing them with structure and support as they progress. The new awards offer national accreditation by the BC, the UKCC (UK Coaching Certificate), and the National Qualifications Framework.

Drawing on years of experience of instructing and coaching we will not just pass on the expected syllabus but will try and give you as many 'tricks of the trade' as we can.

On completion of your training course, you will be confident in what you do and be inspired to go out and put into practice the new skills and techniques which you will have learnt.

You will leave the training course with an excellent understanding of the level the award demands and a clear action plan leading to your assessment if you have not already passed.
