Due to a review of our Educator licence scheme we will not be accepting any license renewals for the April 2019 – March 2020 period until February 2019.

By developing the current Swim England Educator Licence scheme, we can ensure the educator workforce continues to provide a quality service. Also, that it remains up to date with regular continual professional development.

In order to recognise the different educator roles we have the following Swim England Educator Licence categories.

  • Trainee Tutor/Assessor
  • Tutor/Assessor
  • Assessor
  • CPD Presenter
