A first for Puddle Ducks!

Julie is one of the first swimming teachers in the country to study for a Level 3 Diploma

Back in June last year, two of the UK’s major bodies involved in baby swimming teaching, STA and Birthlight Water Parenting announced the launch of a new Level 3 Diploma in Aquatic Teaching – Baby and Pre-School. The new diploma takes teaching baby and pre-school swimming to the next level, allowing teachers to enhance their already extensive knowledge. The syllabus truly focuses on the well-being of the baby and pre-school child to aid a confident, enjoyable and independent ...swimming ability. Its development is the work of a group of several top UK baby swimming experts including Puddle Ducks Technical Director, Ali Beckman.

Julie was very proud to be one of the first swimming teachers in the country to attend this course at Aqua Nurture in Manchester last week and is excited to be bringing such valuable knowledge back to Puddle Ducks North East and all of our customers!
