Preparing for Assessment

British Canoeing has changed the way it assesses the leadership award. Now there is no formal training required before submitting yourself for assessment in many disciplines. Although most paddlers will be confident enough, it can sometimes be a real boost to have a day or two with a coach before your assessment to ensure your skills are sharp and nothing is missing.

We have organised a number of days where we can go through some of the skills required for the assessment and allow you to practice and receive feedback to allow you to proceed With confidence – we can even pair there with actual assessments. For more details on assessments, feel free to contact us.

Leadership Assessment Preparation Sessions

Leadership preparation days are designed to aid you in your readiness to take on the leadership assessment.

We work with you and other paddlers to identify the areas we will focus on and give you feedback. The aim is to have to walk away knowing if you are ready for assessment.

We have arranged several open dates for each discipline to allow perspective leaders to join us – if you are keen to dovetail the preparation and assessment, please get in touch.

Note: All dates a Covid-19 restriction dependent. Restrictions might change the date or the location – we will discuss this with booked clients in the run up to the session.
