- About Us
Go Swimming has everything you need to know about swimming. If you are a parent, a non swimmer or just want to improve your technique this is the section for you.
In British Swimming you will find information about the world of high performance sport, including the disciplines of Swimming, Diving, Synchronised Swimming, Water Polo and Para-Swimming.
The ASA is the governing body for the sport in England. In this section you will find all you need to know about joining a club or competing in England and becoming a swimming teacher or coach.
The IoS delivers the ASA’s courses and is a member organisation. Whether you are a teacher, coach, employer or club you will find everything you need to know about qualifications or educating your workforce.
The Institute of Swimming is the premier provider of the ASA’s courses and the largest trainer of swimming teachers and coaches in England. It is an accredited training provider - like a school or college - and is accredited by the ASA Awarding Body to deliver a comprehensive programme of quality approved courses and continuing professional development seminars.
We recognise that training to become a teacher or coach is a big commitment from any individual - you are starting off on a journey into a new career and we appreciate you will have lots of questions and need support along the way. We are here to help and rest assured that as the premier trainer of teachers and coaches in the whole of the sport, the IoS are at the cutting edge of education and will work to give teaching and coaching the recognition it deserves as a career choice.
Use the Find Training tool to locate training in your area. When you have selected your options you'll be taken to the IoS training and resources website.
As a professional membership organisation, we strongly uphold the principle that all teachers and coaches should be qualified and embrace the concept of continuing professional development. It's an essential part of the life of a swimming teacher or coach - it’s so important to keep up to date with changes and developments and continue to enhance your knowledge and skills by attending further training, and of course you can’t be ASA licensed without attending regular CPD seminars.
