Inclusion in the Learn to Swim Programme1 July 2019
Our Learn to Swim Programme is world-renowned, helping children and adults of all ages, backgrounds and abilities achieve their potential in the water.
It includes four Frameworks, which teach fundamental movement skills, core aquatic skills and different aquatic disciplines.
Learn to Swim Awards are a great way to recognise achievements during the swimming journey. They also mark learners’ progress through the Frameworks.
These are perfect for motivating learners who may may be finding it difficult or are unable to perform some of the mainstream skills needed to achieve a core Learn to Swim Award.
We encourage swimming teachers to make informed adaptations in their lessons to support all of their learners and use alternative methods of reward and recognition where necessary.

Water Skills Awards encourage confidence, competence and versatility in the water. There are seven Awards, each with ten skills for learners to try.
Learners can attempt all ten, but to achieve the Award, they only need to complete eight of the skills. Learn more.
