SEQ Level 2 Teaching Swimming – Blended Learning

This course develops your knowledge, skills and abilities as a swimming teacher. It builds on the SEQ Level 1 Swimming Assistant (Teaching) qualification and gives you the skills to independently plan and deliver swimming lessons.

Blended Learning is a more flexible approach where you complete the theoretical elements of the course online through interactive activities and checks on learning, prior to the practical workshops.

You will be supported through your online learning with 4 Webinars which can be seen in the itinerary below. These will be held on Zoom and led by your tutor.
