    Come and join our lovely team and be part of doing the best job in the world!


    Swim Academy teachers teach our primary school-aged children to swim beautifully and love swimming for life.

    Puddle Ducks Swim Academy is for children aged from 4 to 10 years old and is the natural progression from our Baby & Pre-school classes although direct entrants are also accepted.

    We teach a natural and smooth swimming style, starting with simple skills that we build gradually along with each child's physical ability and confidence. These are balanced with fun activities that develop various skills, such as life-saving, floating and surface-diving.

    Our swimming teachers come from all walks of life and are bound together with a complete love of their job and shared experiences. It’s a fabulous job that still gives you plenty of valuable time to spend with your family. Good swim schools provide excellent training, which usually consists of an intensive course followed by on-the-job training and our teachers are the most highly trained in the industry - and the rewards are amazing! Watching children progress from nervous first starters to confident swimmers is truly a privilege.

    You will work 4.15 pm to 6.30pm on Friday afternoons and / or Sunday afternoons 5.30pm to 7pm in Otford near Sevenoaks. Further opportunities also exist to cross train and teach our award winning Baby & Pre-school classes too!

    No previous swimming teaching experience is required as we will provide full training which will include both the STA Award in Teaching Swimming, STA Safety Award for Teachers and Puddle Ducks' own internal Swim Academy Training Course. This formal training is supplemented by expert on the job training and support.

    We will pay your full course fees for both of the STA training courses and our internal Puddle Ducks Course.

    To apply, please email with your CV and let us know why you think this is the perfect job for you.

    There is no application form for this role. Your CV and covering email will be used to assess your suitability for the position.

    Maybe our next Swim Academy teacher will be you!
