Coach Core Training


This course will be delivered in Marlow, Buckinghamshire.

During this course, you will explore different approaches to understanding and enabling learning. You will also be supported in evolving your personal coaching development plan to enable you to take your learning into practice after the course.

The training is available as a two day practical course.

During the training, you will explore subjects that will help you understand:

  1. The learning journey of the paddlers you coach.
  2. How to coach learners with different needs.
  3. Structures for practice, to enable your learners to get the most from sessions on the water with you.

Around the main sessions you will also explore (with the support of your tutors):

  1. Your role as a coach.
  2. Maximising your development through reflective practice and your personal development plan.

If you're interested in progressing to one of the 22 discipline specific Coach Award qualifications your tutors will support the planning of your next steps.

For qualified coaches, this can form part of your continuous professional development and has a value of 20 CPD points. For others it is the pathway and pre requisite to the Discipline Specific courses and Discipline Specific Coach Award.
