Assessment

The assessment will consist of the Learner reviewing a Case Study, a video of a swimming lesson and answering questions relating to a Case Study, the lesson and their their own development. The Learner is also assessed on the planning and chairing a team meeting. The majority of the questions are based on being the Swim Coordinator at the pool described in the Case Study.

The assessment material is all available via an online platform directly from Swim England Qualifications at a time agreed with the Institute of Swimming. The Learner decides when they are ready to be assessed. Assessment is undertaken by External Moderators that are independent to Swim England Qualifications. The assessment process usually takes between 15-25 working days. If the work is referred then amendments will be required and a re-submission made. Swim England Qualifications apply a charge for this re-submission which may be passed on to the learner.
