Swimming Teachers Association (UK)
Swimming Teachers Association (UK) have operated an incentive-based swimming skills scheme. The STA International Learn to Swim Programme (ILSP) and millions of children worldwide have learned to swim using this system. As part of our commitment to improving the standards of swimming teaching and water safety worldwide we have, after consultation with our members and experts within the industry, developed ILSP, the comprehensive approach to teaching swimming.
International Learn to Swim Programme
This programme by Swimming Teachers Association (UK) is aims to reduce drowning fatalities by teaching children how to swim and providing them with the necessary skills. With the SwimSafer program, you can rest assured that your child will learn how to swim safely before they reach their teenage years.
Swimming Teachers Association (UK) recognises that pupils learn to swim at many different ages and progress at varying paces. It also appreciates that swimming teachers use different techniques and have different levels of experience and that pool managers have diverse requirements. But at the same time, both parties recognise that at no stage should safety, quality standards or consistency be compromised. The ILSP consists of five progressive schemes which are interlinked. There is a standalone scheme for people with disabilities, supporting awards for the more competent swimmer and diver and an introduction to the First Aid award.Register Interest now
