The IoS have produced a brand new guide for course organisers. The comprehensive booklet provides everything that is required to organise an Institute of Swimming qualification or development seminar.
Designed for both existing and aspiring teachers and coaches, ‘Shaping your Career’ is a brand new e-companion to provide all the essential support you need, including the latest aquatics job vacancies from swimming.org.
Swimming teaching and coaching is an active and challenging role so it’s important to keep up to speed with changes and developments to continue to enhance your knowledge and skills. Sometimes though you may need help to develop those special skills needed to really inspire confidence, motivate and get the very best out of your swimmers.
