Resources for Teachers and Coaches


UKCC courses – general information
Becoming an aquatics teacher or coach is an exciting and active role which can lead to paid employment delivering Learn to Swim lessons in your local pool as well as a volunteer role with our club.

UKCC Level 1
This is the first qualification on the qualifications pathway. After successful completion at this level you are able to proceed to Level 2. Both levels have an emphasis on the ‘how to teach/coach’ skills and the ‘what to teach/coach’ knowledge. The holder of the UKCC Level 1 is qualified to teach/coach in a support role only and can actively support a more senior qualified teacher/coach of any level.

UKCC Level 2
In order to teach/coach without supervision you should hold the UKCC Level 2 award.
