There have been some interesting and exciting developments to British Canoeing Awards and qualifications over the past 12 months! The main development being, putting the focus back onto the paddlers goals and aspirations and making recognition of prior experience easier to evidence. For example the Paddlesport Leader Award and New Coach Awards both have direct entry to assessment without the need to attend a training course and complete a series of pre-requisites.
