Swim England Workforce Support Services is a Swim England department that has four key responsibility areas:
- Educator Licensing
- New Educator Training
- Educator Development
- Coaching Certificates
All three areas support tutors, assessors and presenters which encompass the Educator Workforce in aquatics. We support the people who train the teachers and coaches.
The team supports all licensed educators and works toward continually improving the quality of Swim England qualification and CPD delivery.
The Swim England Workforce Support Services team works closely with all relevant departments across the organisation to provide an efficient and responsive service for all educators.
