GLL is looking for Swimming Teachers for our leisure centres in Cardiff.
Shifts, incl. evenings and weekends
Building on our continued growth, we are now the UKs 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 will thrive on supporting people to achieve their potential. Taking a pupils nature and needs into account, you will draw on your knowledge of practices, progression and teaching points and apply it in the most effective way. Naturally, there will 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 are looking for Swimming Teachers with a minimum Level 2 certificate, 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
All pay rates are subject to skills, experience, qualifications and location.
Closing date: 31st December 2019
