How to become a swimming teacher
You can get into this job through:
- an apprenticeship
- training with a professional body
You can complete a leisure team member intermediate apprenticeship.
There are no set entry requirements but it may help you to get in if you have:
- some GCSEs, usually including English and maths, or equivalent, for an intermediate apprenticeship
These qualifications will allow you to teach non-swimmers, improvers and people looking to learn advanced swimming skills.
