Swim England and the Royal Life Saving Society (RLSS UK) have entered into a new partnership to make it easier for swimming teachers and lifeguards to access training.

The partnership will look to create new courses for the aquatic workforce and to make it easier to upskill staff within the swimming sector.

“We have worked closely with RLSS UK for many years, but this is the first time we will be combining our expertise to support the development of the swimming workforce," said Jane Nickerson, Swim England CEO.

“Giving easier access to our high-quality courses through a one-stop shop presents a great opportunity for teachers and lifeguards to complete their qualifications effectively, meaning even more people will be able to benefit from quality lesson provision that embraces the Swim England national learn to swim framework."

Lee Heard, Director of Partnerships for RLSS UK, added: "RLSS UK have awarded more than 1.2 million qualifications in the last five years and with nearly 90,000 RLSS UK qualified pool lifeguards there are some very natural synergies in our two organisations working together to help support leisure operators."
