Rescue Test for Teachers

 

"I set up Starfish 15 years ago when my children were still toddlers.  As a parent I realised the enormous importance for children to learn to swim for safety, technique and enjoyment.  I love the fact that thousands of children have learnt to swim at Starfish over the years and I have built a team of expert but caring Swimming Teachers ready to teach the next generation."

Lifeguard Trainer Assessor

 

"I started working in the leisure industry full time in 2000, working as a Lifeguard and worked my way up to an Operations Manager until 2017, during this time I gained my Swim Teachers qualifications.  I have worked along side lots of different swimming teachers in sports and health clubs and taught many different age groups and abilities.  before recently starting a family. 

 

My favourite part about teaching swimming is helping non swimmers/beginners gain confidence in the water.  I also love teaching children about survival and life saving, one day they could save a life!."
