Combined SEQ Level 1 Swimming Assistant (Teaching) and Level 2 Teaching Swimming - Virtual Classroom

Government guidance means our leisure centres are closed, but this does not mean your training should stop.

We have created this combined SEQ Level 1 Swimming Assistant (Teaching) and Level 2 Teaching Swimming course so that everyone who wants to start their training has the opportunity.

This course will allow you to complete the theoretical elements of your qualification online through a series of live virtual classrooms delivered through ZOOM webinars.

The webinars will be led by your tutor and you will be guided through the course content along with others on your course. You will be involved in group activities, able to ask questions and interact with those on your course.

The webinar itinerary can be seen below. The nine webinars will last around 3.5 hours each and you will have time in-between to reflect on your learning.

During this time you will also be able to contact your course tutor via email. Your tutor will be using Google classroom to support your learning so you will need to create a google account. You will be guided through this in your first webinar.

After your final session, you will need to create lesson plans and overviews which will contribute towards your practical work.

We will arrange your four practical training days once the leisure centres have reopened.

We run courses at pools across England so you can be assured you will never have to travel far to complete your qualification.

Course fees

To allow as many people to start training during these exceptional times, we are splitting the course fee into two separate payments.

When you start the course and begin your online learning, you will only have to pay £356.

Once the leisure centres reopen and we can book your four practical days, we will then arrange your final payment of £534.

Course content

This course develops your knowledge, skills and abilities as a swimming teacher, giving you the skills to independently plan and deliver swimming lessons.

The course is delivered through a mixture of webinars, virtual classroom activities and practical poolside learning. Once we can arrange your practical days, you will participate in at least six 30-minute swimming lessons to gain hands-on experience.

  • How to develop core aquatic skills and the four strokes
  • How to identify and correct common swimming faults
  • How to use a variety of teaching techniques and equipment to suit different needs

  • Key teaching and management skills including class management and assessment, organisational skills, behaviour management, communication skills, and teaching methods
