GCSE/AS and A Level PE – Kayaking and Canoeing

British Canoeing Awarding Body has been working with the OCR to review and shape the new criteria for GCSE, AS and A Level in PE for Kayaking and Canoeing.  The new criteria, now available, is closely aligned with our educational philosophy and approach in developing skills and independence in paddlesport craft.

The OCR documentation refers to competitive situations but can also be used in a recreational context for the activity and environment involving appropriate, tactical considerations.

We hope this will encourage more school and college students to engage with paddlesport as part of their educational studies and provide tutors with a more agile approach to assessing competence.
