The 2019 Swim England Teaching and Education Conference is set to be the UK’s largest event dedicated to the swimming workforce community.

And the event is to feature the National Swim England Learn to Swim and Workforce Awards for the first time.

The awards and conference will be bringing together more than 350 people to network, learn about and discuss the key topics relating to swimming.

On Monday 18 November, the awards evening will take place, followed by the conference on Tuesday 19 November. The venue for the conference and awards evening is VOCO St John’s in Solihull, near Birmingham.

  • Educator of the Year

  • Diversity Champion Award
  • Swimming Teacher of the Year
  • Swim School of the Year
