Government guidance means our leisure centres are closed, but this does not mean our training and qualifications should stop. We have specifically adapted the blended learning version of our SEQ Level 1 Swimming Assistant (Teaching) course to make sure everyone has the opportunity to start their training.
This blended learning course will allow you to complete the theoretical elements of your qualification online through interactive activities, which will be assessed as you work through the course.
The specialist online learning is split into bite-sized pieces, so you don’t have to do it all in one go. This will mean you can work through the course online at home, at your own pace, over the coming weeks. You will be able to start your online learning as soon as you book on to this course.
You will be invited to join an optional webinar so you can ask any questions and share your experience of the training so far with your tutor and others who have begun their online training.
We will then arrange your two practical training days once the leisure centres have reopened. Your practical poolside learning will include at least two 30-minute swimming lessons, so you can gain hands-on experience.
We run courses at leisure centres across England so you can be assured you will never have to travel far to complete your qualification.
To allow as many people to start training during these exceptional times, we are splitting the course fee into two separate payments.
When you start the course and begin your online learning, you will only have to pay £120.
Once the leisure centres reopen and we can book your two practical days, we will then arrange your final payment of £255.
The course develops your knowledge, skills and abilities as an assistant swimming teacher. It will enable you to actively support a qualified swimming teacher in the delivery of a planned Learn to Swim session.
The course is delivered through a mixture of online learning exercises, classroom activities, and practical poolside learning.
