British Canoeing are inviting coaches who may be interested joining the Level 4 Coach Programme starting in May 2017, to get in touch!
The course aims to develop coaching expertise and to develop coaches to influence the development of the sport going forward.
The learning programme is based over a two-year cycle (May 2017 – Sept 2019). The course is made up of a series of distance learning modules, residential 2-day blocks, with integrated delivery and mentoring support from academic and Paddlesport Tutors. Residential events will be held at venues around the UK. A variety of assessment methods will be used to establish both the coaches knowledge and the ability to apply this in their coaching practice. Candidates who successfully complete all these aspects will achieve a Postgraduate Diploma and a British Canoeing Level 4 Award. An early exit option to Postgraduate Certificate, and the option to continue to an M.Sc. are also integrated. The UKCC endorsed qualification is being delivered in partnership with Stirling University; the University of Stirling have established expertise in both Coaching Science and in supporting students from all over the world via distance learning.
Please contact Fiona Fuller at British Canoeing for an Application Pack and further information. The closing date for applications is 30th November 2016.
