Become a Swimming Teacher

At Swimtime, a core value of ours is supporting and developing each other. This is especially true when it comes to our teachers.

Our teachers are trained to the highest standard, by our internal team who are highly experienced and play an active part in developing internationally recognised standards.

Option 1 – We fund your training

For select candidates we can fund your Level 2 Qualification in Swimming Teaching.

Once completed and you begin teaching, we recoup the money over a period whilst you’re earning, by offering you a slightly reduced rate. Once the qualification fee has been recouped your hourly rate will automatically be increased in line with other Swimtime swimming teachers in your area.

The training is flexible, it can be completed in an intensive course or split over multiple weekends. At the end of the course, you’ll have achieved a Level 2 nationally recognised teaching qualification.

Alternatively, you can fund the qualification yourself, so you can start off with a full rate of pay.

Option 2 – Level 1 already?

If you are already qualified to Level 1 Certificate in Swimming Teaching, training is available to achieve your Level 2 Certificate allowing you to teach swimming lessons as an instructor instead of an assistant. We’ll also need to check your DBS and have a short interview to see what experience you’ve had.

Option 3 – Qualified already?

Already have all the necessary qualifications? A swimming teacher looking to join Swimtime?
