Swim England is launching a Coaching and Teaching Register in 2019 that will bring benefits to club, coaches, teachers and participants.
From January to March 2019, all clubs will be required to provide basic information on all active coaches and teachers, regardless of qualification or discipline, for inclusion on a new Swim England Coaching and Teaching Register. This includes paid and voluntary coaches and teachers.
As a membership organisation, we are eager to strengthen our relationships with those delivering within clubs. The Register will be a platform to provide better communication and support to coaches and teachers, and help us, as the Governing Body, to demonstrate best practice in terms of recording and providing quality assurances on the delivery of our sport. It will also give clubs a central database to record their delivery workforce and ensure that their qualifications and training are in order and up to date.
There will be no additional cost for coaches and teachers to be part of the Registers other than existing fees paid by members. As set out in the Swim England regulations, it is the responsibility of every club to ensure that volunteer coaches and teachers are members of Swim England. Also that paid coaches and teachers are members of either Swim England, the Institute of Swimming or the BSCA.
Stage One (January – March 2019)
