Teaching Swimming is a fun and rewarding role but the cost of qualifying can hold people back.
Our academy gives aspiring swimming teachers the chance to receive high quality training and be matched up with an employer for £79, compared to the usual £1,000 cost of qualifying.
In between the courses, they will volunteer with potential future employers to gain practical experience, benefit from CPDs to help them develop as well as getting expert advice and support from a mentor. This will ensure they have the necessary experience for the role and are ready to hit the poolside running.
In addition to the training, successful applicants will also receive a years’ Institute of Swimming membership and access to the online Introduction to Swimming Strokes CPDs.
