GLL is looking for Swimming Teachers based at South Norwood Leisure Centre in Croydon, South London.

Building on our continued growth, we're now the UK's largest leisure social enterprise - and set for even greater success. So, if you have the qualifications and training needed to teach people of all ages and abilities how to swim, join us as a Swimming Teacher and play a key role in the next step of our journey. Bringing ambition to match ours, this is your chance to deliver safe, consistent swimming lessons that give people real confidence in the water - and an invaluable life skill.

As an experienced Swimming Teacher, you'll thrive on supporting people to achieve their potential. Taking a pupil's nature and needs into account, you'll draw on your knowledge of practices, progression and teaching points - and apply it in the most effective way. Naturally, there'll be some administration involved, but rest assured that almost all of your time will be spent doing what you do best - teaching and coaching people to become stronger swimmers, whether in a group or one-to-one, and from babies to adults.

We're looking for Swimming Teachers with either an STA Level 2 Certificate in Teaching Swimming or Swim England Level 2 Teaching Swimming (which meet the CIMSPA Professional Standard of Swimming Teacher). You'll have knowledge of the Swim England Learn to Swim Programme for teaching swimming skills, techniques and awards, and ideally, the National Rescue Award for Swimming Teachers & Coaches. Knowledge of health, safety and other relevant legislation will be vital too, as will an understanding of Child Protection Policy. Plus of course, you'll need to be approachable, with the friendly, patient nature needed to build people's trust, motivate pupils and encourage with praise.

In return, we offer a range of benefits that you'd expect from the UK's largest leisure provider:
- Pension Schemes
- Discounted membership at our leisure centres
- Career pathways
- Ongoing training and development to help you to be the best
If you have the passion and skills for this role, apply now.

If you're not yet qualified to work as a Swimming Teacher, why not sign up to one of the STA (Swimming Teachers Association) courses with GLL College? Visit https://www.gllcollege.co.uk/swimmingteachers/ and book onto a course today.

The welfare and safety of the children in our care is of the utmost importance to us at GLL. We follow safer recruitment procedures to ensure that our staff are checked and appropriate to work with children and young people. Therefore we'll require you to complete an enhance DBS check before you will be allowed to start work.

All pay rates are subject to skills, experience, qualifications and location.
