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

We have created this combined SEQ Level 1 Swimming Assistant (Teaching) and Level 2 Teaching Swimming course so that anyone with experience supporting swimming lessons can complete both qualifications at once.

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

Training format

We have split the theory and practical elements of these qualifications into two courses:

  1. Theory – This will be delivered online through interactive zoom webinars.
  2. Practical – This will start with three zoom webinars to cover some practical topics and your venue orientation. You will then go on to do four, half-day practical sessions at the pool and a final webinar with your tutor.

This course is the first half and covers the theory only.

It will cover the theoretical elements of your qualifications 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.

You must attend all sessions and please ensure that you are in a suitable learning environment with strong internet access.

The 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.

Once you have completed your theoretical training you will then be able to book on to any SEQ Level 2 Teaching Swimming - Practical Session which will include more course content, your swimming lessons and assessment at the pool. Your tutor will complete the practical assessment for your SEQ Level 1 Swimming Assistant (Teaching) qualification as part of this.

Course fees

As this qualification is split into theory and practical sessions, we are splitting the course fee into two separate payments.

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

Once you have finished all the theory, you can book your practical sessions and make your final payment of £534.
