Inclusions & Benefits

How does this training help me obtain PD hours towards AUSTSWIM Licence renewal? AUSTSWIM Teachers must complete a minimum of 10 hours of PD. Each time you complete a World Wide Swim School online training module you will be allocated 1 PD hour. How can the academy benefit me in the further development of my knowledge, understanding and skills as an AUSTSWIM teacher? These professional development training modules and resources developed by Laurie will assist you to:

  • Understand what a good lesson plan and program should include
  • Understand children’s physical development
  • Learn what children are capable of
  • Learn how to develop lesson plans
  • Deliver a world class swimming lesson
  • How and why you should involve parents
