SEQ Level 1 Swimming Assistant (Teaching) - Practical Sessions Only

While pools were closed, we adapted this qualification and split the theory and practical elements into two courses.

This course covers the practical sessions and assessment and is for those who have already completed their theoretical training including e-learning and theory assessments.

Course format

  • 2 x 3 hr Zoom webinar - During this session, the tutor will cover the last of your practical topics, a venue orientation and planning for your swimming lessons. Learners must attend all of the zoom sessions listed, unless you are advised otherwise by your course tutor.
  • 1 x 4 hr Practical assessment session at the pool – this will consist of a meet and greet, preparation, assisting at least two 30-minute swimming lessons, evaluation and feedback. You will only need to attend one of the practical dates listed below. This will be selected with your course tutor on the first zoom session.
  • There will then be a final one to one once you have finished the above where you will receive feedback from your tutor. This will take place online via zoom webinars and be a 30-minute slot during the final online day listed in the itinerary below. Your tutor will arrange the exact time of your 30-minute slot with you at the start of the course.
  • Face to face days - During these sessions, the tutor will cover the remainder of your practical topics and planning for your swimming lessons. This will consist of a meet and greet, preparation, assisting at least two 30-minute swimming lessons, evaluation and feedback. You will be required to attend all sessions listed below
  • Course fees

    The final payment to cover your practical sessions and assessment will be £255.
