Instructors' seminar

Our seminars are a fantastic opportunity for our instructors to upgrade their skills and be inspired by some of the great names in swimming. We believe in supporting them in their drive to be the best.

The theme for this year’s event was “Inspiring Instructors” You can watch our film which celebrates the work and commitment of the Learn to Swim instructors here:


This year our guest speaker, paralympic multi gold medallist and world record holder Sascha Kindred CBE joined our instructors to share his memories of the 2016 Rio Games which saw him go from despair at disqualification in the heats, hope at reinstatement and finally a gold medal in stunning style!

Our ambassadors Duncan Goodhew MBE and Mike Goody joined delegates to find out the latest thinking in integrated swimming for swimmers with social educational needs and disabilities (SEND), wellbeing and techniques for bringing more fun to swimming lessons.
