The CPD will improve your awareness of the aquatic disciplines allowing you to understand how the Learn to Swim Programme has been created to support all the disciplines.

It will give you activities that can be included throughout the 7 stages of the Learn to Swim Programme. This will help to create more diverse and engaging lessons, increasing swimmer retention. It will also help you recognise participants who show a natural ability in one of the disciplines so they can be signposted to further opportunities.
