Jump! Swim Schools team with water safety advocate Laurie Lawrence
Gold Coast-based Jump! Swim Schools has teamed with water safety advocate Laurie Lawrence and his leading online swimming resource, World Wide Swim School.
Jump! founder and Director Ian Campbell said the partnership is inline with the company ethos – ensuring every child is delivered the best possible learning environment, explaining “thousands of babies and young Aussie kids are learning a vital survival and life skill across our network of schools.
“To add the best and most comprehensive teacher training available through Laurie Lawrence and World Wide Swim School Online only further increases our commitment to parents.
“Laurie’s passion for infant aquatics, reducing preventable drownings and developing swim teachers nationally and internationally strongly mirrors JUMP’s mission.
“We are excited by what this means for children across the country.”
Lawrence’s Kids Alive drowning prevention campaign, which he launched in 1988, is now an internationally recognised program supported by the Federal Government.
Lawrence is enthusiastic about Jump! Sharing the very latest information on infant aquatics, commenting “Jump! recognise the importance of upskilling teachers for swim schools to flourish.”
Worldwideswimschool.com, like Jump!, is an innovator and the premier international online training site for infant aquatics.
By using WWSSs for teacher upskilling, Jump! shows its commitment to making sure their franchisees and teachers are leaders, not followers, in the infant aquatic industry.
Campbell said with a large network of swim teachers and franchisees across the country, the ability to deliver quality training content seamlessly and easily across the Jump! network was essential.
He added “by partnering with Laurie and the World Wide Swim School we have access to a wide variety of professional development material that is essential for the development of our teacher and franchisee network.”
Last month Jump! was announced a Silver Stevie Winner for Innovation in Living, Learning and Working Environments at the 2016 Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards — the Oscars of the international business community. Jump! also collected the Bronze Stevie for Excellence in Innovation in Consumer Product and Service Industries.
Campbell concluded “the Jump! Swim Schools curriculum is a breakthrough in teaching babies the basic elements of swimming at a young age.
“We use the best practices from learn-to-swim programs across the world and focus on the core elements of conditioning, buoyancy, breath control and mobility.
“Our family-friendly approach fosters close relationships with owners, teachers, children and parents making for a familiar and safe environment, perfect for boosting the confidence in young swimmers.”
Jump! Swim Schools is rapidly expanding across Australia and internationally through a franchise-based business model.
