Bi-weekly coffee chats with the Learn to Swim team

Come and connect with our Learn to Swim team in a bi-weekly coffee chat.

We’ll be spending 30 minutes each week online, which is a free opportunity to receive updates from the Learn to Swim Team.

Hear the latest Swim England information about Covid-19 and other supporting information. We are also running online roadshows and webinars to support people and organisations delivering the Swim England Learn to Swim Programme.

Guest speakers will be joining us on the chats and we’ll be sharing information about various initiatives and training.

There will also be a chance to ask any questions.

To join a bi-weekly coffee chat – simply click the Zoom meeting link below at the time the meeting is due to start. Then just opt to join the meeting when prompted on-screen.

No future dates set

After a successful 2020 of introducing Coffee Chats the Learn to Swim Team would like to thank every swimming teacher who attended and shared their experiences through an unusual year of swimming.

This time is now key for swimming teachers and swimmers to return to the pool resulting in the Learn to Swim Team bringing the popular coffee chats to a close for 2020.

As we revise these and plan for them to be reopened in 2021 we would encourage you to pop along to one of our webinars for further development and idea sharing, you can find these across our website on the webinar page. We are also contactable via our email address learntoswim@swimming.org.

You can also join one of our free ‘not on the road shows’ online.
