Some of our Teachers have been taking part in additional training over the last few weeks.
Trish Hemsley and Lisa Cooper attended the STA Baby and Pre-school course during the half term holiday. This three day course covered a range of topics including baby and child development as well as specific teaching methods for very young babies and children. The course finished with a written exam and practical session. Both teachers found the course very useful and are looking forward to putting their knowledge into practice during their lessons.
On Monday Helen Blake, Claire Hazelden and Lisa Cooper attended an ASA seminar on Adult Swimming. This session was designed to advise teachers on the adult learn to swim stages recommended by the ASA. The focus was on how to encourage adults, whether new to swimming or improvers, into regular swimming sessions. It also gave our Teachers the chance to meet up with other instructors and exchange ideas.
All our staff take part in continuous professional development courses throughout the year to ensure the Swim School provides the best possible teaching to all our customers.
