Swim england

To become a Swim England swimming teacher, there are two qualifications you need to gain. The Swim England Level 1 Swimming Assistant (Teaching) course is the first step, which allows you to support a Level 2 qualified swimming teacher. We then recommend gaining at least three months’ experience as a swimming assistant before attending a Level 2 Teaching Swimming course. Once you have achieved your Level 2 qualification, you can add to your skills to specialise in specific areas of swimming teaching, such as parent and toddler lessons and coaching.

Swim England Level 1

Your swimming teaching career starts here! This qualification runs over four days and will teach you how to assist in swimming lessons, with practical experience as well as theory. This is assessed by the course tutor through workbooks and practical assessments. Learners must be at least 16 years old, but no prior knowledge is needed.

The cost for this course is £395 per person.
