Advanced Sea Kayak Award Provider

What the Role Entails

By becoming an Advanced Sea Kayak Award Provider you will help paddlers build on their own experience.

This will enable paddlers to apply their skills and decision-making to more advanced conditions and environments.

This includes a wide variety of sea conditions including tidal and non-tidal waters.

The Advanced Sea Kayak Award is paddler-focused.

Above all at Paddles Up Training we want you to help paddlers take charge of their learning by:

  • Supporting your paddlers to become independent.
  • Helping your paddlers to be clear ‘what’s next’ for them.

What does the development process look like?

As long as you meet the minimum requirements, you can become a provider at any time by completing the following steps:

This fun eLearning guides you by subject, through the design of the awards, why we made those choices and will give you some useful hints and tips.

Development Phase

  • You do what you need, this might involve:
  • Co-delivery of Advanced Sea Kayak Awards with other Providers.
  • Reflecting on your own development.
  • Discussing with your Mentor.

Once you feel ready to run the award independently, the final step will depend on your existing qualifications, in some cases you will be able to straight away! It’s a self managed process.

Open the Minimum Requirements tab for more info.

Alternatively, you may need a Final Recommendation.

This must be from a current Advanced Sea Kayak Award Provider.

Final Recommendation

You will work with an existing provider, when you are both happy you fully understand the Advanced Sea Kayak Award and the requirements of being a Provider, they will then send us their Final Recommendation. The role will then be added to your British Canoeing record.

If you would like further information about the process it can be found in the Final Recommendation Guidance Document.
