Applications open for level 1 swimming teaching course

In February 2018, the National Deaf Children’s Society (NCDS) is holding a residential course for deaf young people aged 16 – 25 to achieve a Level 1 Swimming Assistant (Teaching) qualification. Young people will spend four days learning swimming theory and technique, as well as getting hands-on experience of teaching swimming with a fully qualified and deaf-aware swimming tutor. Communication support will be provided.

Once qualified, NDCS will continue to support you to take on:

  • Volunteering
  • Employment
  • further training opportunities

The course will take place in Cannock from Monday 19 February to Friday 23 February. Young people must be able to attend the whole course. Accommodation, food and travel during the course will be arranged by NDCS. The cost of this course is approximately £700 per person. NDCS is subsidising a large portion of this cost and asking for a contribution of £200.00 per person.

For full details and how to apply for this course, please visit NDCS website.

Closing date for applications is Thursday 30 November 2017.

If you need support to complete the application or have a question, please email and one of their Swimming Development Officers will be in touch.
