Swim England and Water Babies have collaborated to produce their most advanced teaching qualification ever for pre-school swimming.
The Level 3 Teaching Pre-School Swimming (Advanced) qualification is set for immediate roll-out. It provides a blueprint for teaching early years swimmers from birth to four years old.
Water Babies teaching courses will now consist of Level 1 Swimming Assistant (Teaching) qualification and Level 2 Teaching Pre-School Swimming before moving onto the new Level 3.
The course includes six weeks of e-learning, one week’s residential, post-course e-learning and a further 22 mentored and assessed lessons. This adds up to the highest level qualification available in early years’ swimming. The qualification will only be available via Water Babies courses.
