British Canoeing NGB Awards

Hop On A Wee Scottish Adventure

British Canoeing NGB Award Outdoor Adventures in the Highlands for all

Here at Highland Outdoor Adventures we are proud to be able to support the next generation of British Caneoing instructors for different paddlesports with NGB awards in canoeing, kayaking, paddleboarding and white water rafting. We can offer the NGB awards right across the country but predominantly use Aviemore & the Cairngorms – the very heart of Scotland. We offer coaching qualifications, leadership qualifications, and safety and rescue courses as outlined below. All of these are formal NGB British Canoeing/Scottish Canoe Association Courses and come with accreditation.

Assessment courses need booking preferably two weeks in advance to ensure that all the pre-requisite requirements are in place.  You will need to register for any leadership or coaching assessment awards in advance which is done through your own personal British Canoeing, Scottish Canoe Association NGB login … but if you are not sure how to do this, we are more than happy to help – as are the respective national governing bodies. 

All of our assessment award courses are run by recognised and certified providers for British Canoeing and the Scottish Canoe Association, and they are tailored to you (while still following a syllabus). We endeavour to create a positive and empowering experience for you, and we are more than happy to answer questions before, during and after the course regardless of outcome. The paddlesports community is very friendly and welcoming and we would love to enable you to become a fully qualified member of this wonderful group of people.
