Introducing the four Frameworks for swimming teachers

Our Learn to Swim Programme takes the non-swimmer on a journey through four specialised Frameworks. Use the links below to learn more about each Framework.

These start with the basics of learning to swim and end with learning skills for sports such as water polo or diving. There is also a Framework for teaching adults to swim.

Each Framework sets out clear expectations on standards and outcomes. Teachers will find this structure helps to:

  • deliver a consistent standard of lesson content and quality
  • monitor a swimmer’s progress.
