Summer Teachers Are Made In Winter


AUSTSWIM is discounting courses this August for new teachers in response to critical teacher shortages and lack of access to swimming lessons for Australians.

Do one thing - to prevent drowning

According to WHO (World Health Organisation), an estimated 235,600 people died from drowning globally in 2019. That is almost 650 every day, or 26 every hour; a silent epidemic of preventable deaths.
Monday the 25th of July was World Drowning Prevention Day, and this year’s theme was to "do one thing” that advances efforts to prevent drowning. AUSTSWIM is committed to raising awareness around drowning prevention through the teaching of vital swimming and water safety skills, and we aim to recruit and educate as many new teachers in the sector as we can.
To assist in this aim, this August, AUSTSWIM is offering selected AUSTSWIM Teacher of Swimming and Water Safety courses across the country for just $299.
AUSTSWIM CEO Bradley Low says “Our focus is on educating as many new teachers as we can, ensuring that children all across the country have access to swimming and water safety classes delivered by knowledgeable and experienced teachers who have been trained to the highest quality standards. Swim schools across the country are operating at capacity and with not enough accredited and licensed teachers, they are turning away families. AUSTSWIM Licenced Teachers are the lifeblood of swimming and water safety programs and have been so for the past 42 years.”
“Their employment and engagement are critical, resulting in more Australians participating in swimming and water safety lessons which will help reduce the number of preventable drownings and water-related injuries.”
AUSTSWIM is launching its 'Summer Teachers are made in Winter' initiative, giving candidates the chance to complete all requirements and be fully licensed to teach a skill for life as an AUSTSWIM Teacher and support the current demand and staff shortages in time for Summer.
