The Konfidence Teaching Scholarship



As part of our 20th anniversary celebrations last year we teamed up with STA and GLL College to launch a new Swim Teaching Scholarship programme and as a result two amazing Women each benefitted financially from one of our bursaries and both trained successfully to become fully qualified Level 2 STA Baby and Pre-School Swimming Teachers.  Since then their careers are now flourishing with one even taking the plunge to start her own baby swim school business.


We were so inspired by their stories that we are going to be doing it all over again once more with STA and GLL College only this year we hope to give up to 5 more adults the opportunity to start a new career in swimming teaching.  During the year there will be Baby and Pre-School Swimming Teachers courses running in London, Oxfordshire, Belfast and Manchester (dates all to be confirmed and locations to be agreed with successful applicants).


Andy Regan, the founder of Konfidence says:


“Swimming teachers make all the difference in helping their students not only to learn a key life skill but to also give them a life-long enjoyment of the water. We are therefore absolutely delighted to be partnering with our friends at the STA and GLL College with the scholarship programme again this year so that we can continue to financially support and help train a future generation of swimming teachers. 
Training to become a swimming teacher and being part of a baby’s first steps into the water is such a rewarding career choice and we look forward to working with STA, the UK’s leader in baby swimming teacher training, and GLL College to support this year’s bursary recipients.
Plus, once qualified, there will be countless opportunities for employment all around the UK and with our 2020 scholarship programme all those that successfully qualify will also be guaranteed an interview with GLL, the UK’s largest operator of swimming pools.”


Get your career started here by applying for a 2020 Swim Teaching Scholarship with Konfidence, STA and GLL College:


Equally if you are the owner of a UK swim school and you want to recruit a new swimming teacher and know of someone who’d like to be given this opportunity (maybe a parent or one your volunteers or student helpers), get them to apply too!
