How to encourage and support pupils’ learning across the recognised strokes using a framework to provide feedback and teaching points. This course will help staff who are poolside to make a greater impact upon learning, enjoyment and confidence.

Designed to improve outcomes for pupils and levels of competence and confidence in staff this course is ideally placed to help schools meet the requirements of the PE and sport premium funding.

This course is delivered as a three-hour module supported by resources for schools to utilise. It is not a qualification, nor does it qualify staff to teach swimming as an instructor. It is aimed at supporting staff members who are poolside during curricular swimming lessons to help promote pupils learning, build confidence and make more progress. Staff would work under the guidance of the Qualified Swimming Instructor / Teacher allowing a small group to be supported to make greater progress due to more contact time, engagement and participation.
