The National Deaf Children’s Society is holding a residential course for deaf young people aged 16 - 25 to achieve a Level 1 Swimming Assistant (Teaching) qualification. Young people will spend four days learning swimming theory and technique, as well as getting hands on experience of teaching swimming with a fully qualified and deaf-aware swimming tutor. Communication support will be provided.
The course will run in Cannock from Monday 19th February to Friday 23rd February. Young people must be able to attend the whole course. Accommodation, food and travel during the course will be arranged by NDCS. The cost of this course is approximately £700 per person. The National Deaf Children’s Society is subsidising a large portion of this cost and asking for a contribution of £200.00 per person.
I have attached an application pack with full details about the course and how to apply. Applications are open now and will close 9am on Thursday 30th November.
