How does the academy work:

The academy allows aspiring teachers to receive all their training for only £79, compared to the usual cost of over £1,000. 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.

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 between 4:00-6:30 pm Monday – Friday, 8:00 am -12:30 pm Saturday and 4:00-6:30 pm Sunday.

There may also be an opportunity to support Pre-School/Adult and Child swimming lessons.

Following the successful completion of training, swimming teachers will work at Jubilee 2 Pool, 80 Brunswick St, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Newcastle ST5 1HG.
