    This award is used by clubs, outdoor centres and organisations to support their activity delivery on mixed craft. This includes single or tandem craft. It will support you to run safe and enjoyable trips, based on your group’s needs and aspirations. You will lead journeys, on moderate inland water, for a range of mixed craft.

    As a result of becoming a Leader, you can work independently or be deployed to lead trips and journeys. The purpose of these trips may be wide ranging from educational experiences, social adventures or trying something new.
