If you would like to be a part of a baby’s first steps into water, and help make their experience the best they can possibly have, then teaching babies and young children is for you!

If you enjoy being there for children who have never swam before and seeing them progress to confident beginners, then you may also be interested in the STA Award in Swimming Teaching. The learners may also be as new to swimming as the babies you are used to, and you can be the person to take them through the most crucial part of their swimming journey!
Alternatively, once you’ve had experience as a baby and pre-school swimming teacher you may find you want to develop more advanced skills. In that case, the STA Level 3 Diploma in Aquatic Teaching – Baby & Pre-School qualification may be for you; it will expand and develop your technical knowledge and provide you with the latest academic research and theories, which you can then integrate into your swimming lessons.
Our next course will be held at Crownbridge School, Cwmbran on 3rd, 4th and 11th November inclusive 9am-4pm each day. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org or download the booking form and qualification specification below
