Teacher Workshop

Swimming Queensland is offering Free Teacher Workshops throughout Queensland, with the support of Georgina Hope Foundation. Teacher Workshops are for any person who is interested in becoming a “Learn to Swim” teacher.

The workshops are free and will provide participants with the water competencies necessary for either, the Swim Australia™ Teacher course, the Swim Australia™ Teacher of Competitive Swimming course or the Swim Australia™ Teacher of Learners with Disability course.  Eligible participants will have the opportunity to continue their education with the Swim Australia™ course, CD ROM theory component qualification at a reduced cost due to a funding subsidy by Swimming Queensland.
