Join the wave of students set to start their swimming teacher training

Embark on a journey that will complement your studies and open up new opportunities for the future.

Summer is the perfect time to take the plunge and become a swimming teacher. This year approximately 1500 enthusiastic individuals like yourself are gearing up to kickstart their training during the summer holidays. With exams behind you, it’s time to consider your future path, and teaching swimming could be the ideal option.

Flexibility and high pay

One of the major advantages of becoming a swimming teacher is the flexibility it offers. You can fit your teaching schedule around your lifestyle and other commitments, making it an excellent part-time job for students or a stepping stone for a career in the leisure industry. Not to mention, the pay for swimming teachers is quite attractive, allowing you to earn while doing something you love.

Develop essential skills

Teaching swimming goes beyond just imparting swim strokes; it equips you with essential skills that will prove invaluable in your future endeavours. Communication, leadership, problem-solving, and patience are just a few of the abilities you’ll hone during your training as a swimming teacher.

Incredibly rewarding

Teaching someone how to swim gives you a huge sense of fulfilment, especially when you witness their progress in the water. The focus on learning through fun activities makes swimming lessons enjoyable for both the swimmers and the teacher. The smiles and excitement of the learners make every moment truly rewarding.
