Are you looking for a rewarding part-time career?
Teaching babies to swim truly is the best job in the world! We are recruiting new swimming teachers for our established private swimming venues, working with babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers. Demand for lessons is soaring, as every parent wants their child to learn to swim.
New to teaching?
No swimming teacher experience is required to apply for this role – many of our current teachers started from scratch! Working for us is ideal if you need a more flexible, part-time position, and we’ll guide you through your qualifications. You will need to take the Swimming Teachers Association (STA) Baby and Preschool course before joining us for our bespoke Puddle Ducks training this summer.
If you hold the STA Baby and Preschool qualification already, you simply need to complete our bespoke Puddle Ducks training course this summer before starting to teach with us.
The right person for the job…
You will be friendly, professional and 100% reliable, with access to your own transport. Needless to say, you will be confident in the water!
You must be happy to work a regular weekend session as part of your teaching pattern. Weekend sessions attract a 25% increased rate of pay.
Successful candidates will start with 3-6 hours of teaching per week and will be keen to grow this to 8-12 hours as they gain experience. Sessions are currently term-time only in the main, however some venues will become all year round in the future.
Opportunities to work as a poolside assistant or to cover other teacher hours are always available.
Initial hours (Bristol):
Sunday mornings in central Bristol or
Friday and Sunday mornings in South Bristol
