Organising an NCTP course
The National Curriculum Training Programme course provides the qualification ‘The Certificate for Teaching School Swimming (Key stages 1 and 2). Read on to find out more about it.
Reviewed and updated for the 2008/09 academic year - click here to read the updated specification - the National Curriculum Training Programme is open to any person working within a primary school swimming programme. This could be as a school teacher, classroom assistant, learning support staff, nursery nurse, qualified swimming teacher, parent, or other helper. In addition students involved in initial teacher training may also attend.
To improve the outcomes of school swimming it is essential to provide high quality school swimming lessons. In order to achieve this it is important to ensure that teachers/assistants are equipped with the knowledge and skills to be able to deliver high quality PE to young people and the NCTP has been developed to deliver this to swimming teachers/assistants.
