Swim England Diving Coach - Blended Learning COVID 19

Government guidance means our pools and clubs are closed, but this does not mean our coaching certificates should stop.

We have adapted this course to make sure you have the opportunity to start your training. It builds on the Swim England Assistant Diving Coach certificate and allows you to complete the theoretical elements of your certificate online through a series of ZOOM webinars and interactive e-learning.

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 others.

The webinar itinerary can be seen below. The first webinar will help you kick-off your studies. You will be guided through the structure of the course and how to access and start your e-learning.

The following six webinars will last around three hours each and you will have time in-between to complete set tasks and sections of your e-learning.

Our specialist online learning which is split into bite-sized pieces so you can work through these elements of the course online at home, at your own pace.

We will then arrange your practical training days once the leisure centres and clubs have reopened. Your practical poolside learning will include at least six training sessions to gain hands-on practical experience.
