British Canoeing Coaching Awards
The Paddlesport Activity Assistant is an endorsement recognised by British Canoeing to support clubs, organisations and volunteers. This is a great first step to develop volunteers to support the activity taking place.
British Canoeing offers four options of paddlesport coaching qualifications all of which are endorsed by the United Kingdom Coaching Certificate (UKCC). These four qualifications form the heart of the current coaching scheme.
Combined with a range of supplementary modules, the four qualifications provide structure and diversity in supporting coaches’ progression. Developed primarily to meet the needs of paddlesport coaches, the four qualifications offer a variety of development options for both recreational and competition coaches.

The Coach Award offers discipline specific pathways across all disciplines and introduces the skills and coaching behaviours required for developing performance through progressive coaching.
Further information and advice for coaches transferring to the coach award can be found in the document below.
Assessment Check In Service
Check In is a new process for coaches who are planning to attend a Coach Award Assessment course.
It’s free, quick and confirmation sent straight to your inbox*. This should then be shared with the assessor to confirm eligibility for assessment.
The purpose of Check In is to confirm the coach holds all prerequisites, saving time on the day of the assessment, as the assessor doesn’t need to check certificates and paperwork.
Please do not try to check in unless you hold all prerequisites, including the completion of Coach Award eLearning module (unless you intend to submit your workbook and portfolio).
Confirmation of Check In will not be issued until the conditions are met.
*Note – until our system is fully integrated, it is necessary for staff to manually check. Confirmation will normally be issued within 2 working days, providing the evidence is on record.
**Note – if you are aware that your record is out of date (for example your First Aid has expired) we recommend you email the check-in form to us with a copy of updated certificates.
