ASA Certificate for Teaching School Swimming (KS1 & 2) Mod 1 & 2 Combined

There have been recents changes to the Teaching courses.

The module 1 is now renamed Fundamentals of School Swimming and module 2 is now renamed Aquatic Skills of School Swimming. Delegates can no longer attend module 1 as a stand alone but must attend the whole 3 day training programme so they are qualified to teach independently and plan and evaluate sessions within the NC guidelines.

Therefore the 3 days for the training are:

Thursday 24th September

Friday 20th November

Friday 27th November

All days are 9am to 4pm at Hengrove Leisure Centre.

NB THERE IS A COST OF £200 (additional delegates £150) FOR THIS COURSE FOR ALL SCHOOLS.

You can book online but places won't be confirmed until we receive the enrolment form which is attached to this page.


The Certificate for Teaching School Swimming (Key Stages 1 and 2) is part of the ASA National Curriculum Training Programme and is recognised by the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) and by the Professional Development Board for Physical Education. 

The Certificate for Teaching School Swimming (Key stages 1 and 2) is open to any person working within a primary school swimming programme e.g. school teacher, classroom assistant, learning support staff, nursery nurse, qualified swimming teachers, parent, other helpers etc. In addition students involved in initial teacher training may also attend.

Once qualified the holder will be equipped to actively assist and/or support a more qualified teacher in the teaching of a range of core aquatic skills to a small group of similar ability within the context of a school swimming programme.

  • Content will include a presentation, group work, discussion, practical demonstrations and delivery set in the classroom, in the pool, and with poolside teaching.
  • Dress code is casual and comfortable, suitable for working on the poolside. Swimming kit will be required for the pool sessions – there will be some practices that are normally used with non-swimmers and beginners, so candidates do not need to be accomplished swimmers.
