Becoming a Trainee Tutor for the ASA

Applications for the 2015 tutor training programme have now closed and we are not taking any further expressions of interest at this time.  When applications reopen for the next available programme it will be advertised here as well as via other aquatic publications. 

What do our tutors say?

 “I really like the thought of improving the quality of future swimming teachers by developing them and helping them learn.”

 “If you are interested in tutor training you should really know your stuff and be keen to make a difference in tutoring the next generation of teachers.  It’s really important to ensure that learning is fun and remember to keep the teachers active!”

“No day is ever the same, the people you meet are all very different and someone always teaches me something new.” 

 “Tutoring means I can do everything I love and share my experiences with others. For me it’s just the best job ever“.

“…being part of such a well known organisation is a good feeling.  The flexibility of the role and the ability to fit in with other commitments is important – I’ve been able to work my tutoring around my job as a swimming co-ordinator and swimming teacher.”
