Quality is at the heart of Swim England’s qualifications. The Level 2 is endorsed by the CIMSPA Swimming Teacher Standard while learners benefit from the support, expertise and standing of the sport’s National Governing Body.

Launched this year, the Level 2 Teaching Swimming to Babies & Toddlers and Level 2 Coaching Open Water Swimming qualifications have proved to be popular additions.

Swim England qualifications are delivered at more than 320 locations by a network of Approved Training Centres, providing an unrivalled coverage of England and Wales.
