Being a swimming teacher allows people to work flexible hours at times and locations to suit the employee as well as being hugely rewarding and well paid.
Currently swimming teachers are in short demand and as such there is a constant demand for staff to either replace staff moving on, or, to help increase business capacity.
in at the deep end run teachers courses on a regular basis either as open courses where people individually book on, or where we are subcontracted out to provide the trainers and qualification specialism.
This is a one day course which is aimed at those who are trained as, or training as, PE teachers.
The course is designed to allow participants to safely plan, deliver and evaluate swimming lessons to children within their educational establishment. It is not designed for use within swim schools or leisure centres.
