    Invaluable Resource

    WWSS has been an invaluable resource for our Learn to Swim program and our swimming instructors alike. The Swim School Hub has been instrumental in helping our swim instructors achieve excellence in our swimming program across all levels.

    The easy-to-follow format, videos, and simple instructions across all levels have been a great way to keep our instructors engaged in teaching.

    Would highly recommend it to anyone thinking of using the platform.

    Using the Swim School Hub helps to ensure that everyone who works with us, runs their lessons “our chosen way”, and ensures consistency of teaching styles across all of our classes and locations. We have a true understanding of what we are teaching and why, with a proven teaching method.

    This has given us much more confidence in our lesson delivery. The resources available are immense, everything is clear and very easy to follow and the support and customer care have been amazing.
