Courses & Workshops

Volunteering roles often require new skills. So to help you make the most of volunteering, here is a range of training courses and workshops which volunteers can attend to develop their skills. These are available through British Canoeing or a variety of external organisations.


Coaching and Leadership:

Sports Coach UK

Sports Coach UK provides a number of workshops to develop coaches to achieve their participation and performance goals. Workshops include:

  • Safeguarding and Protecting Children
  • Equality in your Coaching

Young people

British Canoeing offers courses specifically designed for young people wishing to get involved in leadership and coaching. The new Paddlesport InstructorPaddle Activity Assistant allows young people to get into leadership roles within paddlesport through a training programme based at their own club, centre or organisation.


There are many short courses in a variety of disciplines that volunteers can access through your nearest club or region.
