Interview Excerpt

“It would be more cost-effective for our company to run lessons with larger groups of children. However, health and safety and lesson quality are so important, that we only run private or semi-private lessons. This allows our instructors to focus fully on each child’s safety and needs within the lessons.

Legal requirements dictate that instructors undergo CPR and other emergency training only once every two years. We recognised that this is incredibly insufficient. Thus we run a first aid course at the beginning of every term. That’s three times a year instead of once every two years.

We have also brought into the SwimWay team a specialised health and safety consultant – David Perry. He has over 15 years’ experience in the industry, working with leisure centres, private schools, as well as the STA. David Perry brings a professional eye and mind to the health and safety concerns of our swim school.

David routinely runs the Termly first aid courses. He makes regular monthly pool visits to ensure our sites are up to spec. Additionally, he meets with the site owners and SwimWay management to discuss and resolve potential issues. He is our eyes and ears for the health and safety awareness of the company. Thus keeping us at the forefront of your children’s, and your own safety during our lessons.”

SwimWay Lessons

SwimWay teaches in the comfort of an exclusive, private venue. Classes run for half an hour in semi-private and private lessons only. No floatation aids are used except a kickboard. These small classes ensure a more personal lesson, with more individual attention for each student in the class.
