Lampton Leisure LogoIf you want to become a swimming teacher and enjoy an active and rewarding role with Lampton Leisure then this is the perfect opportunity for you.

How does the academy work:

The academy allows aspiring teachers to receive all their training for only £85, compared to the usual cost of over £1000. It includes mentoring to support your development, and you’ll be matched with an employer.

Successful applicants will complete their SEQ Level 1 Swimming Assistant (Teaching) and Level 2 Teaching Swimming qualifications and be supported through their training journey with Institute of Swimming Membership which includes over £100 worth of free e-learning. To help them develop, trainees will spend some time volunteering and get support from a mentor to ensure they have the necessary experience for the role and are ready to hit the poolside well equipped to teach.

Following the successful completion of training, there may be an opportunity to work at the following venues:

  • The Brentford Fountain Leisure Centre, 658 Chiswick High Road, Brentford TW8 0HJ
  • Hanworth Air Park Leisure Centre & Library, Uxbridge Road, Feltham TW13 5EG
  • Heston Pools and Fitness, New Heston Road, Hounslow TW5 0LW
  • Isleworth Leisure Centre and Library, Twickenham Road, Isleworth TW7 7EU
  • New Chiswick Pool, 4 Edensor Road, Chiswick, London W4 2RG

Teaching swimming is an active and rewarding role. Work hours are generally part-time and there are a variety of working hours and contracts available across weekdays and weekends.

Lessons typically run 3.30pm to 7.30pm on Monday to Friday and weekend mornings. There may be the opportunity to expand your hours with daytime sessions. The ideal candidate will be available for at least two shifts per week.
