Learn how to teach adults to swim with new e-learning seminar
15 November 2012
The IoS have launched a brand new ASA Introduction to Adult Learn to Swim CPD seminar, for teachers to extend their knowledge in teaching adults how to swim.
Supporting the newly launched ASA Adult Swimming Framework, this brand new seminar is the latest in the e-learning collection from the Institute of Swimming and replaces the previous ‘face-to-face’ seminar ‘Teaching Adults Learn to Swim’.
Completing this seminar online means that it is easy to access, cost-effective and fits around existing commitments: learners can study in bite-sized chunks and work through resources independently and at pace which suits them.
Learners will discover how to design and deliver a comprehensive ASA Adult Learn to Swim programme suitable for beginners, improvers and adult stroke sessions. They will gain understanding of why adults want to learn to swim, how they can reassure and engage adult swimmers and the content, considerations and adaptations that should be included in sessions, including stroke techniques and swimming aids. It is an interactive seminar which requires learners to partake in activities and watch various video clips and uses three different fictional characters to help them apply their learning.
The seminar carries ASA accreditation, which means learners will receive a certificate once all aspects have been completed, and can help contribute towards a license. It is suitable for anyone who is, or is interested in, either taking or assisting Adult Learn to Swim sessions: there are no formal pre-requisites.
The e-learning takes approximately 1 hour to complete and costs £32 which includes a hard copy of the new Adult Swimming Framework.
