Swim Australia shares resources to aid swim teacher recruitment
Following its recent revelation of a nationwide shortage of swim teachers, Swim Australia has released a set of promotional media resources to help swim schools and aquatic facilities in their recruitment
Last month, Swim Australia identified that there has been a decline in swim teachers within the industry since COVID-19 with swim schools across the country reporting long waiting lists for lessons while they scramble to find suitable staff.
Estimating a need for at least 2000 swimming teachers across Australia and highlighting that extra training courses were being implemented by the industry body to help people achieve the necessary qualifications, Swim Australia Chief Executive, Brendon Ward stated “we lost a lot of swim teachers during COVID as pools were closed and many were ineligible for JobKeeper and sought alternative employment in other sectors.
The resources being made available by Swim Australia include promotional images and video.
