Continuing Professional Development

This section is for anyone teaching within any of the RYA Schemes and pathways. It is in everyone’s interest, the RYA and our instructors, coaches and trainers, as well as the people we train, to ensure high standards of delivery are maintained.  

With the help of CPD, together we can continue to improve, maintain and develop our knowledge, ensuring we deliver the very best sessions. Whether you use your qualification or appointment in a voluntary or commercial capacity, CPD will accelerate your learning and sharpen your skills, whilst assisting your professional growth and career development.  

While teaching, our ‘instructor tool box’ is one of our most vital resources, expanding our knowledge and understanding, not only builds on these tools, but also enhances our confidence.  

Gaining a qualification is just the start to the journey of instructing. By continuously building on what we have learnt and adding to our knowledge, skills and abilities, we can improve the sessions we deliver.

The boxes below cover various areas to help develop your personal and/or professional CPD.
