PGCE Physical Education Course – National Pool Lifeguard Qualification Courses
Students should be medically fit, a good swimmer and be able to jump/dive into deep water, swim 50 metres in under 60 seconds, swim 100 metres on the front and back, tread water for 30 seconds and surface dive to the bottom of the pool (depth 2.5 metres). Students must attend all the sessions and be eligible to take the assessments. Students should also bring towels, swimming costumes, T-shirts, shorts, clipboard, paper and pens. There will be at least one session in the pool each day. A packed lunch is recommended and other breaks will be taken if and when convenient. This is an intensive course and students will need to be water fit. A number of study handouts will be issued during the course and, therefore, will involve extra reading at home to assist you in passing the award.
Please note: there are only 12 places available per course.
