Lucy Carter

School swim lesson manager

Westcroft Leisure Centre

Everyone Active

Lucy Carter joined Everyone Active Westcroft Leisure Centre in 2015 as an aquatic apprentice.

“I’ve been swimming from a young age and when looking for a career I knew I wanted to work in fitness and teach children: my mum’s a swimming teacher and has always enjoyed her job. After completing my Level 1 ASA qualification, I joined Westcroft Leisure Centre as an Aquatic Apprentice.

"This enabled me to gain my Level 2 and meant I could start teaching my own classes, which is something I really enjoy.

"I teach the same children every week and can really see their progress. My own confidence has grown in the role too and I’ve completed additional CPD courses alongside my swimming teaching. I’ve also been able to qualify as a lifeguard.

"This month I finished my apprenticeship and have taken up a new role managing school swimming lessons.

"I love being part of the Everyone Active team – it feels like a family, with a really supportive and friendly environment. Working with experienced teachers means I’m learning and growing.”
