AUSTSWIM to present ‘Soak It Up’ Conference series

AUSTSWIM to present ‘Soak It Up’ Conference series
April 24, 2017

Swim teaching and water safety body AUSTSWIM is to present a series of state-based metropolitan and regional aquatic education conferences as a key part of its continuing quest to nurture, support and enhance a skilled workforce.

The events will link with the AUSTSWIM ‘Soak It Up’ 2017 National Aquatic Education Conference being held 27th and 28th September in Tweed Heads, NSW, and will present an opportunity for members of the aquatic industry - teachers and presenters, swim centre managers, owners, coordinators and service providers - from around Australia to enhance their skills and knowledge through a selected range of professional development sessions.

AUSTSWIM’s promotion for the events advised “in this summer of record fatal and non-fatal drowning events, our goal is to promote swimming and water safety education more than ever in 2017.

“There is no better time to embrace the late Nelson Mandela’s philosophy: ‘Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world’.”

This year AUSTSWIM’ s focus on education will cover learning during lessons, the importance of goal setting for teachers and students alike, outcomes of learning and pathways to achievement.

These themes will be embraced as the conferences highlight the latest initiatives in water safety, aquatic education, aqua fitness, and middle management in the sector.
