ASA teacher and coach licensing
The dynamic nature of the aquatic profession sometimes brings about the need for change.
The teacher/coach Licensing Scheme for Aquatic Professionals is being phased out between now and March 2015.
The ASA are no longer able to accept any licence renewals or new applications.
All current licences will remain valid until 1st March 2015.
Change to swim21 criteria
In the light of these changes, from 1st March 2015 there will no longer be a requirement for clubs to provide an ASA licence as part of the swim21 criteria with regard to their head teacher or coach. Instead, teachers and coaches can meet the criteria by supplying the following evidence:
- Disclosure & Barring Service check
- Safeguarding evidence
- Appraisal outcomes
Alternatively, teachers can supply confirmation of their RAPs membership.
