How do the changes impact existing Star Award Providers?

We are pleased to announce that every Instructor, Coach, Leader, Guide and Bell Boat Helm will be able to deliver the NEW Personal Performance Awards, providing greater access for the paddling community.

All existing Star Award Providers will be able to deliver some of the NEW Personal Performance Awards, depending on their existing roles held, after completing a specific eLearning package. This orientation to the new awards reduces the need to travel, enables aspirant Providers to access the package in their own time, making this a more cost effective route for all Providers.

From January 2019, all Instructors, Coaches, Leaders, Guides and Bell Boat Helms will be to deliver the Paddle Start and Paddle Discover.

We are also recognising a wide range of coaching and leadership qualifications that enable aspirant Providers to work towards becoming a Provider of the NEW Personal Performance Awards. This also opens up the opportunity for existing Providers to deliver more awards.

For full details of the Provider requirements for the new awards, please see the ‘Provider Requirements for the NEW Personal Performance Awards’ on the Awarding Body website.

Further updates will be promoted via the British Canoeing website and the 'Catch up with Coaching' newsletter. Read our follow up news articles for further details:
