How should I prepare for the training course?

There are no formal Personal Performance Award or Safety Award requirements to becoming a Stadium Raft Guide. However, to get the best from your course you need to feel comfortable in a raft and be able to paddle on man made, artificial sites.

You can look at the Training Notes for more information.

How should I prepare for assessment?

There are lots of ways you can prepare for your Stadium Raft Guide assessment. It is important that you take an active role in deciding the appropriate training and experience that you need. You could book onto the British Canoeing Stadium Raft Guide training course to support you in developing the required skills.

Registration

Before you book onto your Assessment, you will need to be a member of British Canoeing, 18 years of age (or older) and have an appropriate First Aid qualification and complete your registration.

What is Registration?

Anyone wishing to pursue a Coaching or Leadership qualification is required to centrally register with the appropriate National Association (British Canoeing, Canoe Wales, Scottish Canoe Association, Canoe Association of Northern Ireland). Registration is the process by which you confirm your intention to study towards a particular qualification. It includes:

  • Checking of previous qualifications
  • Completing and signing the Registration Form
  • Medical Declaration (if required)
  • Setting up and providing access to course resources and eLearning (where applicable)
  • Acceptance of the terms and conditions of study and helps you understand your rights whilst undertaking the qualification and how your data will be used.

Once you are registered, you become a learner with the National Association, we are able to contact you with relevant information and updates to your course of study, help you find a course and local support or mentoring.

When and where does registration take place?

We would recommend that you register as early in your development journey as possible to access all of the support and learning resources. As a bare minimum, and to support your learning, we would recommend registering at least two weeks before your Assessment. Registration is an online process through your British Canoeing membership portal. Registration is separate from booking a place on a course; the latter is done directly with the Course Provider. It is worth noting that many Course Providers want to see evidence of Registration at the point of booking.

There are lots of ways you can prepare for your Stadium Raft Guide assessment. It is important that you take an active role in deciding the appropriate preparation, training and experience that you need, before booking your assessment. Informal learning and experience-based learning are important for your development as a leader.

Optional British Canoeing Training

British Canoeing Stadium Raft Guide Training courses are available to support you in your development of the required skills. These courses will cover all the required leadership skills, personal skills and safety and rescue skills to support your development journey. As this training is delivered by British Canoeing Stadium Raft Guide Providers, they are well placed to help you identify an appropriate action plan to support your progress towards a successful assessment.

Other Training Opportunities

There are lots of experienced Raft Guides who can support you in your development in a personalised and individualised way. For example, in-house training at your rafting club or workplace, working alongside or shadowing other Raft Guides, private tuition or conferences, symposiums and workshops, the list is endless! You could also work with a Stadium Raft Guide Provider on an individualised programme as they have explicit knowledge of the award requirements. No matter which development journey you choose, the Stadium Raft Guide Assessment Matrix and Stadium Raft Guide Assessment Notes can be used as a guide of the skills required.

Course Assessment

We do everything we can to take the stress out of assessments, we are focused on the journey and not the destination. The experience will be safe, engaging and enjoyable, with you at the heart of the process involving you in as much of the decision making as possible.

By the end of the assessment, you will have to demonstrate knowledge and skills in four areas:

  • Personal Paddling Skills
  • Rescue Skills
  • Safety, Leadership and Group Skills
  • Theory

Help and support ahead of your assessment

Every Stadium Raft Guide will prepare differently for their assessment, however, you can check your readiness for assessment using:

If you’re nervous about your assessment and want to make sure you’re ready, why not ask a Stadium Raft Guide Provider to check your readiness for assessment?

The Stadium Raft Guide journey is personalised to anyone who takes the award and depends on your existing experience. There is optional Stadium Raft Guide training, which covers the required leadership skills and associated personal skills, safety and rescue skills. These courses vary in length, depending on your existing skills, with longer courses giving you more opportunity to practice. Alternatively, you can choose individualised training opportunities, for example, shadowing at your rafting club or centre, private tuition, symposiums, to up-skill in the areas that you need.

The assessment takes place over a minimum of 3 hours depending on the logistics relating to the assessment.
