The qualification is designed to support the instructor with practical skills such as kitting up a group and getting afloat, initial familiarisation activities, games and activities to support learning and how to use mini journeys to support learning, inspire adventure and exploration.  This is enhanced with support on how these sessions can be delivered in a way that is enjoyable, safe and rewarding.
