From the 3rd April 2017 your Outdoor Learning Service will be able to deliver quality training and assessment leading to Paddlesport Leader Award.
The Paddlesport Leader is aimed at paddlers taking on formal leadership responsibilities in benign, sheltered water environments and aims to support Leaders to run safe, quality, enjoyable trips based on their group’s needs and aspirations.
The assessment is one day (plus a meeting prior). East Lothian Council Outdoor Learning (ELCOL) are able to run this assessment from 3rd April. ELCOL will also run endorsed Paddlesport Leader Training. Costs can be reduced for those operating within East Lothian – please contact us for more details

Link to the Level 1 Coach Award
We believe that a Paddlesport Leader who also holds the Level 1 Coach award is well placed to fulfil their coaching duties with more autonomy. The Paddlesport Leader award requires a higher level of personal skills and safety/rescue skills than the Level 1 Coach award; providing further assurance that they have the skills to make, and fulfil, sound leadership decisions whilst out on the water.
