Teaching Courses

Last year Lara and Jenna both went off during October half term and spent hours training on becoming STA tutors. This was all done with the plan of being able to train new teachers in the local area as teaching courses in Yorkshire are quite difficult to find.


They ran their first course this February half term and were moderated during the course to ensure the course was being delivered correctly to our new candidates. We are very pleased to announce that not only did they pass with flying colours but so did the candidates on the course who are now starting work with Brightwater as assistant teachers working alongside some more experienced swimming instructors to gain more experience before progressing to take the next course and become a fully qualified teacher.


There are two more courses planned this year (maybe more to come) and further details can be found on these courses here: STA Safety Award for Teachers or STA Award in Swimming Teaching
