    Baby Pre School Swimming Teacher x 2

    Burton on Trent & Ibstock

    We have 2 part-time, weekend roles available, teaching babies and toddlers from birth to four years. These teaching assignments are in Burton on Trent (Derbyshire) & Ibstock (Leicestershire) with the potential for further classes/locations.

    Becoming a baby swimming teacher is an amazing job! When you work for Puddle Ducks you’re part of such an enthusiastic bunch of talented teachers, both locally and nationally, who give you so much ongoing training and support.

    We offer highly competitive rates of pay and excellent career progression. No previous teaching or professional swimming experience is required as full training is provided. We are here to support you with your training at every step along the way. You need to enjoy being in the water and able to swim, have a confident and friendly personality, be flexible and a team worker.

    It takes someone very special to become a baby and toddler swimming teacher:

    Someone with a love of water and a love of children
    Someone who cares enough about giving babies a gift of complete freedom and pleasure in the water
    Someone who wants to give them something that is both a skill for life and a life-saving skill
    It doesn’t take years of swimming training
    It doesn’t take years of childcare experience or training
    It takes passion, commitment and a willingness to spend several hours in a swimming pool!

    Becoming a swimming teacher for Puddle Ducks takes hard work and commitment, but brings huge job satisfaction and fits in brilliantly around family life and other work commitments.

    You will required to work at least one weekend session and have a car and driving licence.
