As the Coaching Department strives to support learning and development amongst instructors, coaches, leaders and guides, we have been busy working with the Technical Groups over the past twelve months to design and create a range of resources.
Following on from the consultation earlier in the year, we have provided British Canoeing Affiliated Clubs in England with an update on several areas.

Following the announcements by the Prime Minister today in relation to the ongoing Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, British Canoeing is once again operating with most staff working at home for an indefinite period.
To mark the start of Plant Health Week, British Canoeing has joined forces with the government, environment organisations and other water-based recreational groups to help halt the spread of a highly invasive non-native plant that is choking rivers and lakes across the UK.

In January 2021, there will be brand NEW Raft Guide awards for those on artificial white water and natural rivers as well as those leading a flotilla of rafts.
The great thing about the NEW CPD process is that your development opportunities are directed and controlled by you. This means that you can pick the CPD that’s relevant and interesting to you, that’s delivered in a way that you find engaging and meaningful.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, and the difficulty that some Instructors, Coaches, Leaders and Guides are having in accessing a course to renew their First Aid Qualification, British Canoeing Awarding Body will be further extending the First Aid Extension eLearning to the 31st December 2020.
