Bag a bargain as prices reduced on Learn to Swim Awards bundles

Learn to swim providers can bag a bargain as the cost of bulk buying Swim England Learn to Swim Awards has been reduced.

A total of 12 bundles are now on sale with a 20 per cent discount on the standard price applied.

It is the first time Swim England has offered discounts on its Learn to Swim Awards and they have been introduced to help ease the financial pressures its member swim schools, learn to swim providers and clubs offering lessons are facing due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Swim England Learn to Swim Awards play an important role in learn to swim programmes in the UK and internationally and almost two million certificates and badges have been awarded, making it one of most successful in the world.

There are 10 Learn to Swim Awards bundles, plus two Pre-School Awards packages available – with varying prices starting at £82 plus VAT for 25 certificates and badges.

Katie Towner, Swim England Head of Learn to Swim, said: “We know how difficult it has been for our member swim schools, learn to swim providers and clubs that deliver swimming lessons and this is a simple way that we could support them in getting back on their feet.

Reward and recognition

“These bundles are great because they encourage delivery of our full programme – including core and complementary Awards – as well as giving children the reward and recognition to rekindle their love of swimming after such a long time out of the water.

The Swim England Awards support the Swim England Learn to Swim Programme, which is an all-inclusive programme that takes the non-swimmer from first splash to developing confidence and competence in the water.

They can also be scanned by the popular My Learn to Swim app givings users the chance to unlock more than 60 digital rewards.

The Swim England Learn to Swim team are also on hand to support in the delivery of the programme and there are a number of online resources, materials and webinars.
