Teachers The SwimEasy Way!
Our aim is to provide and produce the very best swimming teachers in the country. We will achieve this by continual assessment and regular training both on-the-job and at regular theory clinics. Our teachers are reminded constantly of all of the latest up dates in teaching practices and these are delivered on a regular basis. We encourage our teachers to be aware of activity levels of the children taking part in their classes; this ensures continuity and guarantees proper progression
We allocate a Progress Advisor to each pool venue who ensures that constant feed back is provided to individual teachers regarding their individual performance levels. Our Progress Advisors liaise between children, teacher, and parent on the poolside and report to the general office and management staff on the dry side. Our Progress Advisors ensure that all lessons run smoothly and efficiently.
Our teachers are graded as Trainees, Levels 1 and 2 for the Teaching of Swimming Certification. Club Coach Certificate and Coach Certificate.
We also employ a Risk Assessment, Health and Safety, and Child Protection Coordinator to work at certain venues. This officer oversees ensures that all the companies’ policies and requirements are adhered to properly. In addition all staff working directly for SwimEasy or who are self employed are registered with Disclosure Scotland (criminal records office)
SwimEasy provides the opportunity for new teachers and trainee teachers to attend an Induction Course prior to commencing work.
