"Building confidence through quality teaching in a safe and fun environment"

Our Teachers...

Here at Solutions Swim School we pride ourselves on Quality Teachers providing Quality swimming Lessons in the Swindon area with no more than eight children per class. We also have a helper in the pool with levels 1 to 3 giving greater safety and confidence to the swimmers. Every Teacher at Solutions Swim School has five things in common:

  • Membership of the ASA's Institute of Swimming (IOS) - The professional body for Swimming Teachers in the UK
  • All hold the ASA's Teachers Certificate for Swimming (NVQ level 2)
  • They all hold the ASA / RLSS Rescue Award
  • All are committed to on-going training through CPD
  • Above all – they all love teaching children to swim

Our Teachers ARE Solutions Swim School to the swimmers and parents:

Solutions Swim School Teachers are central to our successful swimming curriculum both now and in the future. It is their responsibility to deliver the swimming lesson programme and as you invest in your children's confidence in and around water so we continue to invest in the best teacher training to ensure all our leaders are the best they can be.

  • We always pay particular attention to recruitment – there are plenty of qualified teachers but few with the additional natural qualities we are looking for.
  • In order to work here at Solutions Swim School, teachers agree to term by term contracts– committing to teach all the lessons in that course (subject to exceptional circumstances) – This is only fair on the swimmers.
  • We have a clear contract of employment with our teachers – with clear and concise policies covering the obligations and responsibilities of both parties.

Our customers demand the best Teaching for their Children and so do we!
