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. 

*Hours are subject to adjustment but will not differ drastically from those advertised. You must attend 100% of sessions and submit all homework and coursework on time for marking to complete the course successfully.

The cost for this course is £395 per person.

STA

The first step you’ll need to take to become a fully qualified swimming teacher with STA is The Award qualification. 
The STA Award will develop your vocational skills and technical knowledge, so you can independently teach your own class of 12 participants from non-swimmers, beginners or improvers (children and adults).
The next step to progress as a swimming teacher is to retain your swimmers by offering advanced lessons, extended skills and advanced awards with the STA Certificate.

STA Level 2 Award in Teaching Swimming

This is the Swimming Teachers Association qualification enabling you to teach non-swimmers, beginners and improvers (Swim England stages 1-4). This is a five-day course covering practical and theory elements, with a tutor- assessed workbook and an externally assessed swimming lesson.
