Coach Award - Applications Invited

British Canoeing and the Home Nations will need a number of British Canoeing Coach Award Tutors and Assessors in order to deliver the Coach Award from the 1st January 2018.  The British Canoeing ‘Coach Awards’ will supersede the current Level 2, Moderate/Advanced Water Endorsements and Discipline Support Modules. The Level 1, 3, and 4 Qualifications are to be renamed. 

The development focuses on restructuring and creating discipline specific pathways available across all disciplines. This will significantly change the prerequisites and the pathway through taught and assessed elements.  

SCA and each of the Home Nation Delivery Centres are responsible for recruiting Coach Award Tutors and Assessors to meet their specific workforce demands. 

Successful applicants are required to commit to a development process before they are able to take on full responsibility for delivery of courses.

This will include: 

  • Coach Award Provider Orientation
  • Complete and evidence an (agreed) individualised action plan 

The cost to attend the orientation is £150 (non-residential).

Interested providers should complete the application form for their Home Nation but can attend any Provider Training date.

The application will need to be completed in one sitting so you may find it helpful to draft your answers offline first and then paste into the online form.  (see document linked below for the questions).

The deadline for applications is noon on the 21st August 2017.
