At Lichfield Dolphins all of our teachers are qualified swim teachers.
They all hold a Swim England teaching qualification which means they have all undergone the appropriate swim teacher training, are fully trained in child protection and are DBS checked.
Our teachers continually update their skills by attending a series of Continual Professional Development workshops provided both internally by Lichfield Dolphins and externally by Swim England.
Some of our teachers are themselves competitive swimmers which enables them to pass on valuable real life swim tips while teaching. We will teach your child the four strokes in detail so that when they are ready and should they wish to do so, they can swim in a competitive environment.
The founder members of Lichfield Dolphins worked within the competitive arena and one of the reasons we decided to set up the school was that we could see children coming into the club without the skills needed to swim competitively.
At our school, all children who decide to stay and pass their higher badges will also be prepared for the competitive environment should they so wish.
