PLEASE NOTE: New Swimming Teacher Qualification

Scottish Swimming is developing a new qualification for swimming teachers, based on feedback and consultation with partners and providers.

As with any new qualification there is a necessary period of development and verification, which will take place in the first 3 months of 2019. Your cooperation in assisting us with this process is greatly appreciated.

There will be no UKCC Level 1 or 2 swimming teachers courses approved for delivery after 31st December 2018.

To ensure that there are sufficient piloting opportunities for the new qualification, we will target and select courses for development purposes in January, February and March 2019.

Once the new accreditation arrangements have been confirmed we will let you know about this process. However, please be assured that any candidates undertaking and passing a pilot course will be a qualified swimming teacher.

If you have any questions about these plans, please contact

Please note that the registration of all other UKCC courses will remain unaffected. 

UKCC aquatics courses/qualifications are currently available in the following areas

  • Levels 1, 2 and 3 in Coaching Swimming
