What to Expect

You'll spend day one covering the Foundation Safety and Rescue training course. On day two, we'll introduce the foundation coaching skills. You'll work to develop these skills on day three, ready for assessment. Days four and five will cover the assessment, which will cover coaching sessions, safety and rescue assessments and verbal questioning. You'll have peer feedback and observation as well as trainer feedback, and together with self reflection, we'll help you use this to develop a robust action plan for future development.

Introducing people to the sport of canoeing and kayaking will provide both them and you with a lifetime of rewarding experiences.

We want to help you focus on achieving your goals, so if you're staying with us, 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. As this is an assessment, you're expected to be self-sufficient for equipment (access to our extensive range is the norm on our courses for future reference). However, we have an extensive fleet of sea kayaks, so if you're travelling some distance, we can provide you with one.
