Swimming Teacher/Swimming Instructor

At Puddle Ducks we want every child to love swimming, respect the water and swim beautifully. That’s why our standards are the highest and our approach is unique.

Our highly trained and qualified teachers are experts at identifying children’s levels of ability and adapting activities to the individual, nurturing confidence and encouraging natural ability.

Our lessons are taught in specially selected pools with limited class sizes. Classes incorporate rhyme (our bespoke songs have been written by professional musicians) and movement based on extensive child development research.

Our programmes and teacher training are continuously developed in the latest techniques, ensuring our teaching standards remain the highest.

We are recruiting a part time swimming teacher/swimming instructor to work in and around the Doncaster/South Yorkshire area teaching baby and preschool children and primary school aged children.

It takes someone very special to become a swimming teacher/instructor but you don't need to have experience of teaching already (although it would be an advantage). We are looking for people with the following attributes:

To enjoy being in the water and able to swim
Confident, friendly and warm personality
Flexible approach and team worker
Enjoy being around children
Someone with a passion to teach babies and children a skill for life and build their water confidence

About the Role
A fantastic opportunity to join an exciting organisation and still have time with your family. The job satisfaction is like no other. Puddle Ducks offers continuous support to all teachers as well as provides the lesson plans to teach each week.

Our business is totally dependent upon having the best teachers. Commitment, passion, loyalty and the ability to create a good rapport with children, carers (usually mothers), babies and small children are all absolutely essential. Our customers need to know their teacher loves their job and this will be reflected in the way they teach.

Teaching swimming classes in the Doncaster/Rotherham area
Must be able to commit to at least one weekend day

Due to the nature of the role there are several training courses that need to be undertaken to qualify as a Puddle Ducks teacher/instructor including an internal course.

The rewards are amazing. It is no surprise that baby swimming teachers are constantly smiling. Their lives are full of happy parents, babies and toddlers, giggles and smiles.
