Swimtime Teaching Standards

Industry leading

Our swimming teaching standards are at the very heart of Swimtime. All our teachers are hand picked and verified to ensure our swimmers receive a safe, fun and rewarding experience.


All our Swimming Teachers are qualified to internationally recognised standards. They will hold:

  • A swimming teaching qualification at a Level 2 from a recognised Awarding Body such as Swim England or STA
  • A rescue qualification
  • First Aid training 
  • Safeguarding certification 


Swimtime teachers not only hold UK Government recognised qualifications, they are also trained by Swimtime to deliver an enhanced service. Many of these qualifications are provided from our in house training team at the Swimtime Training Academy.  They provide aquatic education not just to Swimtime, but to commercial clients all over the world.


Our award winning technology, helps our network of family run businesses stay on top of the latest training. This ensures that our teachers are not only qualified, but continue to learn and growth throughout their time with Swimtime.


Swimtime was founded in 1998. For over 20 years we have developed knowledge and experience that not just complies with internationally respected standards but plays an active role in shaping them.
