Our New Exclusive Partnership with STA

At Swimming Nature, we’re delighted to announce that we have partnered with The Swimming Teacher’s Association (STA), the award-winning international charity who work towards the objective of preserving human life by teaching swimming! 

The basis of our partnership will involve the launch of our brand-new online training programme, which our Founder Eduardo Ferré will be working hard on over the next few months with the help of STA specialists. This new CPD course will encompass the elements of our award-winning teaching programme, alongside our vast experience in personalised and private tuition. 

Eduardo Ferré said: “We are very proud of our pioneering approach to teaching, and as a team, we are looking forward to sharing our knowledge and our passion for swimming with the STA and their members with the launch of this new CPD. Together through education and training, we want to raise standards in this specialist area of the private swim school market and in turn create new professional teaching opportunities.” 

Zoe Cooper, STA’s Commercial Director, said: “We look forward to working with Eduardo and his team over the coming months to develop a unique CPD that will provide swimming teachers all over the world with insight into how Swimming Nature successfully teach learners in a personalised private lesson environment. As an international teaching community, learning about different ideologies is such an important part of our continuous professional development. By sharing the specialist teachings of the Swimming Nature Method, and providing a more in-depth understanding of the alternative approaches they use to teach swimmers of ages and abilities on a 1:1 or 2:1 basis, we want to start conversations and inspire new ways of thinking that can positively enhance our knowledge – and even serve to create new future income opportunities for teachers, especially in the current climate.” 

To find out more about our trademark method, which is endorsed by Olympian Mark Foster, take a look at our website here: www.swimmingnature.com

We will be re-opening for intensive Fast-Track swimming courses from the 3rd August in selected venues, followed by site-wide Autumn Term private swimming lessons from the beginning of September. To book, please visit: https://book.swimmingnature.com

Our Decision To Close During COVID-19

Earlier this week, Swimming Nature took the decision to temporarily close its doors based on the rising concern we had for the health of students and teachers alike.

For all of those who’s lessons have been affected by this decision, please rest assured that we have taken the measure to apply class credits to your Swimming Nature accounts. In addition to this, Swimming Nature recognise that there is very little certainty as to how long all of this will last and so we have extended the validity of all credits to twelve (12) months and also added the option to gift your class credits to close friends or families that you think would benefit from learning to swim.

The UK Government started the week by advising social distancing and later announced that by Friday 20th March all schools will be closed. With the expectation that the UK Government will impose further sanctions for the safety of the population, we are very happy with how we positioned ourselves, as well as the extremely positive response our teachers and customers have had.

We want to take this time to wish everyone the best in what we expect will be a trialling period in all our lives. Please keep safe, well informed and comply with the recommendations set out by the UK Government and British Health Organisation.

Hopefully we will be able to resume lessons as early as 20th April 2020, however, we will continue to post updates as things unfold. To keep informed, follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Stay Healthy!
