The new funding comes as a result of a rise in demand for teachers created by the First Lap Voucher. This provides $100 vouchers to parents, guardians and carers of children aged 3-6 years who are not yet enrolled in school, or kindergarten children who missed out on swimming lessons due to the pandemic.
NSW Minister for Skills and Training Alister Henskens said swimming is a life skill which is best taught in a child’s early years and the initiative will ensure children learn vital water safety education. “Teaching kids to swim is a fun, rewarding and flexible career and with jobs in-demand now is the perfect time to start your journey in the aquatics industry,” Mr Henskens said.
There are 4 free AUSTSWIM TWS courses on offer throughout May only and the course is held over a weekend.
We have a team of 10 qualified, talented and experienced teachers at Splashed! They are passionate about helping children to learn important life saving swimming skills.
