This route differs slightly in its approach to the teaching and coaching swimming RPL in that you would be required to complete elements of the practical syllabus whilst attending a Swim England Synchronised Swimming Coach course. Please therefore ensure you have identified a course to attend prior to embarking on the RPL/Access route.
