These workshops will focus on Observation and Feedback techniques as well as a comprehensive overview of the changes to the Instructor awards which have taken place in the last year and what is expected at training and assessment level.
Updated tutor resources will also be distributed to those attending. On the day we also aim to have an open discussion on possible future changes to the level 1 & 2 instructor courses. Your input and experience is essential as you will be the tutors on the ground delivering the awards. All current tutors should attend.
In order to maintain best practice in the delivery of the skills awards the Training and Development Unit are running a series of CPD events for trainee and qualified instructors.
This Level 4 Skills Assessment CPD workshop is open to all Level 4 Kayak trainee and qualified Instructors wishing to improve their delivery of the Level 4 skills assessment. This workshop will focus on the practical elements of assessing the Level 4 Kayak skills and will involve demonstrations of how the various elements of the assessment can be delivered. You will need to bring all of your usual paddling gear, including boat and paddle and expect to get wet!
The Level 4 syllabus can be found on the Canoeing Ireland Awards and Qualifications Page at www.canoe.ie.
