About Time to STAnd up for Swimming
STAnd Up for Swimming is STA's new campaign, which will be rolling-out in 2022 in response to the crippling swimming teacher shortage in the UK.
As an educational charity dedicated to 'preserving human life by the teaching of swimming, lifesaving and survival techniques', the STA think it's time to stop the talking and take action – and as the programme says "STAnd Up for Swimming" – stand up for all those involved in grassroots swimming … swim schools, swim operators and our future young swimmers.
Through the STAnd Up for Swimming programme, STA will be pledging tens of thousands of charity funds to train many hundreds of new swimming teachers for FREE, around the UK, in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland in 2022.
We know, one of the main issues that is preventing new people joining the profession is the cost of training – STAnd Up for Swimming removes this cost barrier through the provision of FREE training.
The aim over the course of 2022 is to qualify many hundreds of new Level 2 swimming teachers – who once qualified will then be able to hit the deck running.
