Legacy Leisure are looking to recruit one Swimming Teacher Apprentice to be based at Hutton Moor Leisure Centre. If you love Swimming or have an interest in Sport or Teaching, this apprenticeship could help you build a career out of your passion.

The 12 month Coaching Learn to Swim Apprenticeship Framework will give you the skills and knowledge to not only work as a fully qualified Swim Teacher with Everyone Active, but also an all-round understanding of their Swim School Programme and other aspects of leisure which may include lifeguarding and operations. 

The programme is designed for those individuals wishing to pursue a career in the leisure industry through a teaching route. The swimming programme gives you a wide range of knowledge and experience, and most importantly the qualifications to help you develop a career within the leisure industry. At the end of this apprenticeship you will be a fully qualified swimming teacher, with the ability to teach lessons to groups of swimmers from beginners to experienced, children to adults.

Swimming teachers help people of all ages and abilities to develop swimming skills and techniques, or exercise in water. If you are a good swimmer, and you could motivate and inspire others to develop their skills, this Apprenticeship could suit you well.
