The NCTP is comprised of two training programmes that use a combination of theory and practical sessions on how best to deliver school swimming.
Fundamentals of School Swimming (previously known as Module – 1) – once completed the holder will be able to actively assist and support a more qualified teacher. Candidates can then progress to the second training programme.
Aquatic Skills of School Swimming (previously known as Module – 2) – once completed the holder will be qualified to plan and evaluate sessions in line with the national curriculum and teach independently within a school swimming programme. Candidates can only undertake this Aquatics course having successfully completed the Fundamentals course.
Fundamentals and Aquatic Skills – Full Course: This will take the 2 full days, there will be time in the pool on both days and a teaching assessment with children on day 2. Once successfully completed candidates will receive an ASA certificate. Candidates will have online access to Aquatics in the National Curriculum Activity Cards giving fun, varied and progressive introductory activities for children learning to swim and a learner guide to support them through the training.
Audience: All courses are open to any adult working in a school swimming environment: school teachers, classroom assistants, learning support staff, nursery nurses, qualified swimming teachers, parents, PGCE students or other helpers.
