Meet our team

To be a Splash Stars swimming teacher, you have to have a love of life, a passion for it, a drive and determination to help children succeed. It doesn’t just take a keen eye, to train as a teacher our staff go through 48 hours of study, 30 hours pool training, an STA assessment, train as a lifesaver, study and learn child development, countless hours studying lesson plans, safeguarding trained, DBS checked and assessed by our technical director before they teach their first lesson!

Once our swimming teachers are trained they are given ongoing support such as phone conferences, face to face meeting and in the pool practice which is ongoing to top it off they are all also have an assessment twice a year to ensure high quality of teaching is maintained.
