CPD for Coaches & Teachers

The Continuous Professional Development Programme has been developed to enhance the skills of our qualified teachers and coaches.

Please seek to improve your skills and knowledge in our sport so as to help Scottish Swimming develop ‘Best Practice’ throughout our Learn to Swim programmes and clubs in Scotland.

We hope you will find these courses engaging, informative and stimulating.

Club Poolside Helper Educator Training

Scottish Swimming offers help to clubs by training coaches within the club on how to support volunteers through their journey to becoming Club Poolside Helpers.

Once the club has a trained deliverer, they will be able to run the Club Poolside Helper Couse. This will give the volunteers the knowledge, skills and understanding to assist on poolside in your chosen aquatic club and identify mentoring sessions to help them develop and progress to undertaking their UKCC Level 1 Coaching certificate in the future.

More information on Club Poolside Helpers can be found in the Downloads section on this page.
