RYA Sailing Instructor Certificate for Philomena
Lower Sixth Form student Philomena A has successfully completed the RYA Sailing Instructor qualification, a one week training and assessment course which she undertook during the half-term holidays. The course includes practical assessments, presentations, guidance on coaching skills and sailing and weather theory. As well as being able to teach sailing to both adults and children, she also qualifies as a ‘Start to Race Instructor.’
In order to qualify, as well as being a competent sailor herself, she had to obtain a RYA Pwerboat Level Two certificate and pass a first aid course. This is a wonderful achievement for Philomena, well done!
