Positive Destinations Aquatics Academy 2018

6 August 2018

The In2Aquatics Academy is a fully funded opportunity that provides a combination of swim based activities and tailored employment support for young people.

We are looking to recruit 12 motivated, enthusiastic and reliable young people 16 - 24 years old with a passion for sport who would be able to commit to the project for 8 weeks. 

The In2Aquatics Academy Provides:

  • The chance to obtain your National Pool Lifeguarding Qualification (NPLQ)
  • Exposure to quality, structured swim teaching sessions and the opportunity to shadow highly qualified teachers
  • Learn essential life skills, including First Aid and CPR
  • Opportunity to gain a UKCC Level 1 Teaching Aquatics and SCQF Level 5 in Sports Leadership qualifications
  • Advice and guidance on education and training opportunities to help develop you & kick start your career in the sports industry
  • An environment that helps increase confidence and self-esteem.

The project will be delivered between September and October 2018 at Portobello Swim Centre and Gracemount Leisure Centre, however city wide travel to alternative venues may be expect over the project.

Please find attached the registration form for the project (please note this is a generic flyer and some information is subject to change). It is important that every young person who wishes to be considered for course, completes the attached registration form and returns it to myself, via post or email by no later than Friday 24th August. All who register their interest will then be invited to attend the Information Day, where they will get a full project overview, meet the course tutors and take part in a discussion with the tutors on their suitability to gain a place on the course.

If you have any questions or queries about the course, please do not hesitate to get in touch via email or any my contact details below.
