Instructor Conference

  • 25th February 2017 - Loch Leven Community Campus (Kinross)

This annual conference held towards the beginning of each year is a great opportunity to meet the RYAS team, keep up to date with the latest news within instructing for both centres and sailing clubs. It is also a day full of CPD workshops with great learning opportunities to those new and old to instructing.

Club Visit Days – CPD

We hope to make CPD more accessible and cheaper for the volunteer coaches by visiting active clubs and running single day CPD programmes specifically targeted to the needs of the club. These clubs will be identified by them expressing an interest in hosting a day or by the RDOs who will advise on what the clubs needs are. These can also be organised by a group of clubs if they wish to host a day for all their local coaches or instructors.

Pre Course Support

If you are looking to join a Senior Instructor or Race Coach Level 2 Course, or any other coach/instructor qualification, RYAS looks to provide extra support to you to ensure you are in the best possible position to ensure you pass the course. This support will come in many forms whether it is advice, workshops to increase your knowledge or teaching skills or simply to improve your sailing. Contact the Coach Education Development Manager for more information.
