Our Learn to Swim Programme is world-renowned, helping children and adults of all ages, backgrounds and abilities achieve their potential in the water. As well as core Awards, our programme includes complementary Awards such as the Alpha Steps and I CAN Awards, which can be used to reward smaller steps.
We encourage swimming teachers to make informed adaptations in their lessons to support all of their learners and use alternative methods of reward and recognition where necessary.
