Information pack and application form for the National Deaf Children's Society's Level 1 Swim Teaching Residential in February 2018.

Applications now open!

You will spend four days learning swimming theory and technique, as well as getting hands on experience of teaching swimming with a fully qualified and deaf-aware swimming tutor. Communication support will be provided.

Once you are qualified, we will continue to support you to take on:

• Volunteering

• Employment

• Further training opportunities 

If there are more deaf swimming teachers, we believe more deaf children and young people will be inspired to take up swimming and other aquatic sports. We want to enable you to work with other deaf young people in a swimming environment to make this a reality. This is a great opportunity to develop new skills and meet other deaf swimming teachers.   

For full details and to apply please download the application pack. If you need help or have a question, we would love to hear from you! Please email the team at and one of our Swimming Development Officers will be in touch. 

Applications are open now on a first-come-first-serve basis.
