How do the Performance Coach changes impact existing or aspirant Performance Coaches?

Aspirant or Existing Performance Coaches

The NEW Performance Coach Award will be available from 29th June 2020 and we know that existing or aspirant Performance Coaches will be wondering how this impacts them.

Existing Performance Coaches / UKCC Level 3 Coaches

Simply, the changes do not affect current Performance Coaches / UKCC Level 3 Coaches. Any qualification taken with British Canoeing will remain recognised, as long as it meets your group’s demands and the environmental conditions.

Aspirant Performance Coaches

Candidates currently working through their Performance Coach qualification have been contacted to discuss their options. Please refer to the ‘Advice for Coaches transferring to the Performance Coach’ document. Aspirant Performance Coaches may choose to complete their qualification in the existing system or move to the new system. Existing candidates will be able to use parts of their training to bypass the new components. 

Please see the ‘Advice for coaches who are part way through the Performance Coach programme’ document for further guidance, which can be found on the British Canoeing Awarding Body website.
