RYA Teaching in the Classroom

1 day

Age 18+

Course comprises of an online pre-learning module which takes approximately one to two hours followed by a one-day classroom session run by an RYA Trainer.

Course explores maximising interactions with students, practical instructing techniques and how to go about producing your own course and lesson plans.

Delegates will be expected to prepare two lessons in the time between completing online module and attending the classroom session. These lessons will be delivered during the classroom session with the opportunity to gain feedback from the trainer. Lesson subjects will be allocated according to the candidate’s upcoming instructor course subject or experience.
