Building on our continued growth, we’re now the UK’s largest leisure social enterprise – and set for even greater success. So, if you have the qualifications and training needed to teach people of all ages and abilities how to swim, join us as a Swimming Teacher and play a key role in the next step of our journey. Bringing ambition to match ours, this is your chance to deliver safe, consistent swimming lessons that give people real confidence in the water – and an invaluable life skill.
As an experienced Swimming Teacher, you’ll thrive on supporting people to achieve their potential. Taking a pupil’s nature and needs into account, you’ll draw on your knowledge of practices, progression and teaching points – and apply it in the most effective way. Naturally, there’ll be some administration involved, but rest assured that almost all of your time will be spent doing what you do best – teaching and coaching people to become stronger swimmers, whether in a group or one-to-one, and from babies to adults.
We’re looking for Swimming Teachers with a minimum Level 1 certificate, knowledge of the Swim England Learn to Swim Programme for teaching swimming skills, techniques and awards, and ideally, the National Rescue Award for Swimming Teachers & Coaches. Knowledge of health, safety and other relevant legislation will be vital too, as will an understanding of Child Protection Policy. Plus of course, you’ll need to be approachable, with the friendly, patient nature needed to build people’s trust, motivate pupils and encourage with praise.
Join us as a Swimming Teacher and enjoy career progression and great benefits including flexible hours and locations, a uniform and discounted membership at all our leisure centres.
All pay rates are subject to skills, experience, qualifications, age and location.
To be shortlisted for the role, internal applicants will need to demonstrate their commitment to GLL by becoming a Society member where eligible.
