Our ‘Teaching School Swimming and Water Safety’ course has been developed for Level 2 swimming teachers who want to deliver school swimming lessons and is available as either an online course or face to face seminar. It gives swimming teachers an understanding of what primary schools are required to teach and report on, knowledge of swimming in the national curriculum and where it sits in relation to physical education. It covers how to engage pupils and use swimming and water safety activities to support other areas of the curriculum.

Course candidates all receive a certificate on completion of the training course.

Please note that attendance at both dates is required

High quality swimming lessons are key to a child’s learning experience and essential to promote confidence and safety in the water. The NCTP delivers the right training to ensure school children receive the best quality aquatics education.

Class teachers and other adults who already have an established relationship with their pupils are absolutely the best placed people to make school swimming a success. For them to become confident in the delivery of swimming lessons at statutory national curriculum levels, they need support, training and the necessary resources.

On completion of the NCTP courses candidates will receive CPD Certificate for Teaching School Swimming (Key Stages 1 and 2).
