Kayak Instructor Workshop

There is an exciting opportunity and exclusive invitation to you for an upcoming event that promises not only an exhilarating experience but also valuable professional development opportunities.

UWC Thailand International School are hosting an American Canoe Association (ACA) Kayak Workshop, tailored specifically for international school educators, which will allow you to become a certified coach. The workshop will be facilitated on the beautiful island of Phuket on September 1-4 2023.

The ACA Kayak Workshop offers a unique platform for educators to enhance their skill set, expand their knowledge base, and engage in an enriching outdoor experience. As educators, we constantly seek opportunities to broaden our horizons and offer our students the best and safest learning experiences possible. This workshop will help you achieve these goals in several significant ways.

  • Training and Skill Development: The ACA Kayak Workshop is designed to provide comprehensive training in kayaking techniques, safety protocols, and risk management. You will learn from highly skilled instructors who are well-versed in both theoretical knowledge and practical expertise. By honing your kayaking skills, you will acquire valuable tools to incorporate adventure and outdoor education into your curriculum and camp experiences.
  • Safety and Risk Management: The workshop places a strong emphasis on safety and risk management in the context of kayaking and water-based outdoor activities. You will receive comprehensive instruction on essential safety measures, emergency procedures, and the implementation of risk management strategies. These skills will not only ensure the safety of your students during outdoor excursions but will also instil a culture of responsible adventure in your school community.

Phuket, known for its stunning landscapes and pristine waters, provides the perfect backdrop for this transformative experience. During the workshop, you will have the opportunity to explore the scenic beauty of the island while connecting with fellow educators from around the world.

Due to limited availability, I encourage you to secure your spot as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
