Employers have a lot to gain from their individual employees being members of the premier aquatics institute. Read on to learn more.

IoS Membership for your employees can provide a range of benefits – benefits that would take your organisation to the cutting edge of teaching and coaching innovation.

IoS membership is essentially a package of benefits for teachers and coaches who hold ASA, or equivalent, qualifications in all disciplines of the sport. These include access to a range of seminars and CPD.

When your workforce become members of the IoS they qualify to apply for a teaching and coaching licence.

The IoS’ long term aim is to encourage you as employers to use the licensing scheme as part of the appointment process and to move to a situation where we have a predominantly licensed profession. There is also the option of a bulk licence to cover workforces for employers.

All qualified aquatic instructors, whether paid or unpaid for their service, who meet the stated criteria and are committed to ongoing personal development, have the opportunity to apply for a licence. It acts as a robust safeguard for employers when recruiting.

Contact the IoS membership department here.  Alternatively, you may wish to contact one of our team of Aquatic Officers.  Click here to access the contact details for all Aquatic Officers (AO's) across England.
