Calling all Swimming Teachers and Coaches to the University Pool

Posted on: June 14, 2011

The University in conjunction with national governing body – Cerebral Palsy Sport – is running a continuous professional development (CPD) day for swimming teachers, coaches, physiotherapists and trainer assessors on Sunday 17th July.

The CPD which will focus on working with severe mobility impaired swimmers, is the only course of it’s kind in the country and is endorsed by the Amateur Swimming Association.

The course will be split in to two parts with a dry side practical session in the morning and a wet side session with disabled swimmers in the afternoon . Ultimately, the course will be great for developing knowledge and giving further confidence for working with disabled children and young adults in an aquatic environment.

And if you needed any further persuading, we have some of the most experienced swimming teachers and coaches in the business leading the CPD – Anna Lavan and Jill Stidever – from CP Sport.

The course will start at the Jubilee Sports Centre (NG7 2GG) at 10am and will then move on to the University Swimming Pool (NG7 2RD) at 1pm, with an expected finishing time of 3pm. All for the bargain price of £20.

Once completed, you will come out of the CPD with access to resources and a certificate to confirm your participation. If you’re looking to work with physically disabled children and/or adults, then this course is definitely worth considering.

If you require any further information, please contact the University’s Disability Sport Officer:
