Paddle Chats are on a Thursday evening starting at 7.30pm.
These paddle chats came about during lockdown 1. They were initially ‘masterclasses’ for the participants that signed up for the BC guide modules WithDave deliver online. Once the modules were finished the participants asked if the Thursday evenings could continue and they developed into the Paddlechat sessions run by peers for peers with us facilitating them. There is often a ‘beer’ or two involved and during the lockdown period we all enjoyed an opportunity to catch up.
Paddle Chat will return in the autumn. We are looking for speakers if you would like to deliver a Paddle Chat. If you have missed any or want to see more please look in our video library.
Using WithDave Paddle Chats For British Canoeing CPD points
We are excited to share that British Canoeing will consider WithDave Paddle Chats as appropriate CPD when submitted as part of a CPD application. We are able to provide certificates of attendance that you can upload through your Go membership profile,. This should be done close to or on the date of the 3-year CPD expiry. If you just upload CPD claims (like a First Aid cert) it won’t be accepted and not added to your CPD record.
When ready to apply for CPD if you simply upload the attendance certificate you will probably be awarded 5 CPD points. If you wrote to support the CPD application and put about how it has changed your practice or how you have reflected on the development as a coach/leader, you could get up to 10 CPD points. To help you we have provided a short form to support your CPD application
