Moderate Water Endorsement Assessment - Canoe

Assessments don’t need to be difficult. On a Wild River Moderate Water Endorsement assessment we will give you the opportunity to work with students who are keen to learn from you. We will bring students who are receptive to learning and open to the coaching you deliver.

As with all our courses this assessment will be run in a relaxed and open atmosphere.

Each candidate will be given a small group of students to teach. After a period of observation and analysis you can coach your students towards your agreed goal.

Sample Programme

  • Meet for introductions and paperwork
  • Venue and equipment familiarisation
  • Briefing on the outline of the day and expectations
  • Introduction and allocation of students
  • Run coaching sessions
  • Lunch
  • Personal skill check
  • Rescue skill check
  • Debriefs

We promise that...

  • We will be supportive and do our best to make sure you are as relaxed as possible.
  • We will assess you at the correct standard as stated in the syllabus,
  • We will make sure you fully understand what you need to do.
  • We will make sure that the assessment environment is at the right standard, eg a grade 2 river for 4 star canoe assessments.
  • We will give you as much time as possible to show what you can do.
  • We will take you through the assessment process in short steps that are clear and simple.
  • If the assessment involves leadership or coaching of others we will do our best to bring real students for you to coach or lead.
  • Our decisions will be made based solely on performance and not with any bias of any sort.
  • We will give you a clear action plan for development at the end of the assessment.
  • All our assessment team are encouraged to smile and give you a hug when you need it.
