ENHANCE YOUR SKILLS EASILY WITH NEW ONLINE SEMINAR BOOKING SYSTEM
14 Jul 2009
It is now even easier to enhance your skills and advance your career with a new online seminar booking system developed by the Institute of Swimming (IoS).
The new system, which is being piloted throughout the summer, enables candidates to book their place on a selection of continuing professional development (CPD) seminars via the British Swimming website. Users simply enter their IoS membership information and credit card details onto the website in order to book their place. They then receive immediate confirmation of their acceptance onto the seminar via email. Non-IoS members are also able to log in by completing a brief online registration process.
Workforce Development Quality Manager for the Institute of Swimming Michael Hallewell said “The system has been developed in response to customer feedback and we are happy to provide a way to make booking onto a seminar easier for them. We are looking forward to being able to offer all seminars via the online system in the future, following a successful pilot.“
The seminars currently available for online booking are as follows:
• National Plan for Teaching Swimming: AquaFun – 5th September – Alton Sports Centre, Hampshire
• National Plan for Teaching Swimming: mini-polo! – 6th September – Bramcote, Notts
• National Plan for Teaching Swimming: mini-polo! – 12th September – Bracknell, Berks

In order to comply with national education and training standards it has developed two separate and independent arms – the ASA Awarding Body and the Institute of Swimming (IoS) - which represent the awarding and delivery channels for all ASA qualifications.

It is the equivalent of other awarding bodies such as City & Guilds and OCR (Oxford, Cambridge and RSA Examinations). The ASA Awarding Body is licensed by British Swimming to award qualifications in England and Wales. It also has the remit for quality assurance of all areas of UKCC standards.
Institute of Swimming (IoS)
The IoS is a licensed training provider, like a school or college. It is one of many ASA Awarding Body Approved Centres. The IoS is also a membership body for qualified swimming teachers and coaches, providing insurance, advice and learning opportunities to its members.
