Tutor Training Programme
Swimming teaching and coaching is a varied and very rewarding career choice, but what you may not have considered is what happens ‘behind the scenes’. In order to qualify, train and support thousands of aquatic teachers and coaches across the country, there is a highly trained network of supporting individuals, which presents similarly rewarding career opportunities.
The natural instinct of a teacher or coach is to inspire others to be successful, so it’s the perfect career step to take the plunge into tutoring. Tutors provide a wealth of experience in their field and play an integral role in developing the next generation of aquatic professionals.
Get involved and help deliver a wide range of Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) endorsed qualifications. The ASA provides a buddy both during the initial training and once qualified, and sometimes financial support can also be offered.
Trainees are required in all disciplines, particularly Diving, Water Polo, Synchronised Swimming and Coaching.
The tutor training intake has now closed for 2013. If you would like to be added to the holding list please email us on the below address and we will contact you in time for our next intake in 2014

What do our tutors say?
“There is definitely a feel-good factor in knowing that you are part of the revolution to professionalise the industry, and the fact that I will be part of the build up to 2012 by educating a new generation of teachers is a massive thing for me.”
“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.”
