What will the course offer
This course provides candidates with the industry standard to work as a fully qualified swimming teacher. The course integrates our high-quality standards in how to deliver fun, progressive and safe lessons and ensure candidates are delivering great swimming lessons, teaching children ‘the Becky way’.
Our virtual lessons provide a mix of guided learning with 10 tutor-led online interactive lessons in zoom, a digital portfolio to complete at your own pace and live assessment time at one of our partner venues.
For all courses there is between 1-2 hours home study required per online lesson over the duration of the course (including reading, online questions and tasks, research & lesson planning) in our virtual academy digital classroom.
Our courses value the highest amount of practical experience possible and spending time on poolside. This includes a real environment observing, assisting and teaching children’s lessons of a full range of abilities from non-swimmers to advanced as well as peer teaching and stroke analysis wherever possible. Assessment takes place over 2-6 sessions, usually at evenings and weekends in our swim schools.
We provide fun, games-based learning in both the virtual and live classroom with limited ‘sit-listen’ as we value learning through interactive, diverse approaches.
Our combined course provides a blended and holistic approach to SEQ Level 1 Assistant and Level 2 Teaching Swimming with a progressive pathway from observing lessons, assisting already qualified Level 2 teachers, team teaching with support from peers into taking responsibility for your own lessons, leading the teaching with and eventually without an assistant. All supervised by our excellent team of SEQ licenced BAT Tutors, they will support, guide and mentor you along your learning journey to be inspired and confident in your new skills and role.
We also have teaching opportunities available in our swim schools and can support your journey through to regular, paid teaching and additional qualifications and training.
