NEW British Canoeing Leadership Provider Application

Thank you for taking an interest in the New Leadership awards and becoming a Provider.

We currently have 30 experienced Leadership Providers that deliver British Canoeing Leadership Training and Assessment Courses across Northern Ireland.

We need to recruit Providers to support our delivery aspirations and support the increase in demand we expect for these fantastic programmes. We welcome applications from women and minority groups who are currently under-represented in our wider team.

We welcome applications from members of the Rafting and Stand Up Paddleboard

communities who may not at the moment have involvement with Canoe Association of Northern Ireland or British Canoeing.

Being a Leadership Provider is demanding, but also very rewarding as you will be directly supporting, mentoring and assessing leaders who go on to introduce, support and develop tens of thousands of people exploring the environment through our sport.

In this application pack you will find information on how to apply as well as the requirements of the role and application forms/options

I wish you good luck in your application

Club and Workforce Manager

Application process/timeline

  • Applications open 3rd June 2020

We will process applications as they are submitted, it is essential that you discuss your application with and seek the permission of your references before submission.

  • Application deadline 23th June 2020 (12:00 (noon))
  • Application decisions by 10th July 2020

Application decisions will be sent via email (unless agreed otherwise) If successful your offer will be conditional, based on attending an orientation successfully and completing any agreed action plan within an agreed timescale.

If successful, applicants are required to book on to an orientation event within 12 months (10th July 2021), failure to book on to an orientation may require a new application to be submitted.

Due to the current social distancing measures and travel restrictions we are not able to confirm dates or fees at this time. However, we are conscious that for many travels will be difficult, nights away from home impractical and for many who have been unable to work during the pandemic funds will be tight.

We will endeavour to run orientations for new providers ‘at cost’ and limit travel and overnight accommodation requirements. For this to happen we need to understand number of applicants, geographical spread etc.

Dates & costs will be communicated to on the 10th July.


Successful or not applicants will be given the opportunity to discuss their application, explore possible actions to strengthen future applications or discuss suitable alternatives.
