New ‘blended learning’ approach means learners can gain qualifications from home

9th May 2013

The IoS are transforming the current UkCC delivery programme for Level 1 and Level 2 Teaching Aquatics and Coaching Swimming.

Through the new delivery programme Level 1 and Level 2 Teaching Aquatics and Coaching Swimming qualifications will be delivered through a blended programme of e-learning and face to face teaching. This gives learners the freedom to complete the course core units at home, while the technical units are delivered by a real ‘live’ dedicated assessor.

The e-learning modules are delivered through an industry leading e-portfolio system that encourages reflective practice for lifelong learning and allows users to network, develop interactive communities and share best practice with peers.

The ability to take on flexible learning is so important for those in full-time employment or with childcare commitments. Blended learning allows the ASA to better meet the needs of our diverse learners, so those who prefer home based learning or are unable to travel are able to study in their own time, at their own pace, in their own environment.

The ASA is the first national governing sports body in the UK to offer a blended learning delivery programme for UkCC Level 1 and 2 courses. The new system will be rolled out from 13th May in the North, shortly followed by the Midlands and South regions in July.

All of the normal pre-requisites for ASA Level 1 or Level 2 Teaching Aquatics or Coaching Swimming apply. To find out more visit www.theiosonline.com
