A new training certificate has been launched by the Swimming Teachers'
Association (STA). The Student Teachers Certificate is aimed at sixth-form colleges, swimming clubs and Duke of Edinburgh Award candidates and will enable holders to assist qualified swimming instructors. The 20-hour course includes theoretical support, the practical teaching of swimming and the National Aquatic Rescue Standards Bronze Cross Award, which tests rescue and first aid skills.
