St. Albans, Hertfordshire
If you’re looking for an incredibly rewarding way to apply your experience working with young people in a leisure setting, which will pay you to keep active and have fun, we have an amazing role for you!
About the Role
Swimming Teachers are responsible for planning and delivering fun, safe and engaging sessions for children in the school holidays. You’ll work with our coaching teams to provide high energy and inclusive activities, ensuring every child is engaged and making progress, regardless of their ability.
Swimming Teachers also ensure the welfare of children is paramount at all times, ensuring all individuals follow the Kings Camps’ Swimming Policy, as well as the venue’s Normal Operating Procedure and Emergency Action Plan, applying them comprehensively.
Children are grouped by age (typically 5-7, 8-10, 11-14, 15-17), so you’ll need to be able to adapt activities for varying ability levels within each group. Our programme involves structured games and activities (rather than a learn to swim programme) and concentrates on developing confidence in the pool, learning stroke techniques and skills through active games.
What does a typical day look like?
Teaching from poolside, a typical day swim teaching could include working with 3 to 8 different groups of mixed ability children aged between 5 and 17, with a maximum of up to 16 children in the pool. Each session typically (depending on age) lasts between 30 – 45 minutes.
Session times and pool availability can vary, but we typically run sessions between 9.30am – 15.30pm, Monday to Friday at some of the best schools and university facilities across the UK.
