THE KONFIDENCE SWIM TEACHING SCHOLARSHIP

In partnership with STA and GLL

 

As part of our 20th anniversary celebrations, we’ve teamed up with STA and GLL College to launch an exciting new Swim Teaching Scholarship programme, where we are offering 5 adults the chance to receive a bursary and train to become a fully qualified Level 2 STA Baby and Pre-School Swimming Teacher this year.

 

Andrew Regan from Konfidence says: “Swimming teachers make all the difference in helping young learners, not only to learn a key life skill but to also give them a life-long enjoyment of the water.  Therefore, in our anniversary year, we wanted to do something beneficial to directly support the future of swimming teaching.

We are absolutely delighted to be partnering with STA and GLL College with the scholarship programme so that we can financially support and help train a future generation of swimming teachers. We also have plans to roll out the programme internationally later on in the year.”

Training to become a swimming teacher and being part of a baby’s first steps into the water is such a rewarding career choice, and we are thrilled to be able to offer this opportunity in partnership with STA, the UK’s leader in baby swimming teacher training, and GLL College.

Plus once qualified, there will be countless opportunities for employment all around the UK, and with our 2019 scholarship programme all those that successfully qualify will also be guaranteed an interview with GLL, the UK’s largest operator of swimming pools.
