We support trainees through their training journey with membership and free access to our introduction to swimming strokes online CPDs. In between the courses, there is a period of volunteering with a potential employer to gain practical experience. Trainees also benefit from CPDs to help them develop as well as getting expert advice and support from a mentor to ensure they have the necessary experience for the role and are ready to hit the poolside well equipt to teach.
