You'll have two days of formal training then enjoy two further days consolidating and improving the skills you've learned in time for an assessment on the final day. This generic award covers both canoe and kayak skills on flat water and is the pre-requisite if you're aiming to reach your Paddlesport Instructor Award.

A fee will be payable to British canoeing on successful completion of the assessment. Otherwise, we want to help you focus on achieving your goals, so comfortable accommodation (with WIFI included) and good food are part of the deal - you don't need to think about sorting this out for yourself. Support is on hand from our friendly, and exceptionally well qualified, staff to help develop your understanding and personal skills. They also help you to formulate an appropriate action plan for your further development. What's more, you'll have access to our extensive range of paddling equipment and clothing to use whilst honing your chosen skills. You just bring yourself, your 'can do' attitude, and determination to achieve excellence.
