This specialist primary phase course is aimed specifically at supporting any teacher or support staff who will be working alongside a fully qualified swimming instructor. It is aimed at increasing knowledge and skills to be able to support the learning poolside and make a more effective impact on progress.
This course also includes and aligns with all the new (January 2019) guidance produced by Swim England and The Swim Group for Curricular Swimming and Water Safety.
Recognising the requirements of the new doubled PE Premium funding and the limited focus on PE during Initial Teacher Training (ITT); the course will cover teaching approaches and practical application of knowledge.
NEW! January 2019
Learners will be able to:
- be effective and contribute to safe lessons,
