Summer update

Easter success

We would like to thank our all learners and tutors for making our busy Easter Period a great success. We ran seven Swim England courses across three weeks in six different locations. In total 40 Level One and 20 Level Two learners passed and are now beginning employment across London and the surrounding counties. After completing her Level Two Swimming Teacher course at Reigate Grammar School (in conjunction with PoolSchools) Gabriela Mladenova said, “this is the best course I have done for the last 10 years”. On our Level Two course at Willesden Leisure Centre operated by 1LIFE Uzma Malik said “I realise I have found my passion; every lesson gives you job satisfaction and seeing your children progress is what makes it all worthwhile.”

We pride ourselves on making the learner journey as smooth, fun and educational as possible. We have had amazing feedback from all our learners and we continue to receive good feedback from employers who have taken our learners into employment.

We would also like to thank our partners Redbridge Vision, 1LIFE, PoolSchools and Aspire for there continued support. For information on our future courses please visit
