Charlotte Chambers

Swim lesson manager

Hucknall Leisure Centre

Everyone Active

Charlotte Chambers joined Hucknall Leisure Centre as a lifeguard aged 16 and is now a swim lesson manager.

“I always enjoyed swimming as a child and I love seeing people progress, so becoming a teacher seemed the perfect role.

“I joined Everyone Active as a lifeguard, then took my Level 1 and Level 2 swim teacher qualifications – at the time I was the first 17-year-old to take the qualification and I was determined to make the most of the opportunity!

“I taught lessons as part of the Swim Scheme three days a week for the next three years, while taking CPD courses in water polo, child protection, adult teaching and more.

“I headed abroad for a time to teach and returned in November 2015, as I love working here. I was given the opportunity to progress to swim lesson manager, which was really exciting.

“I now work to improve the numbers of participants and make the Swim School a success. I also spend time watching swimming teachers and helping them to progress to swim managers themselves.”
