About the employer

You only learn to swim properly once, so why not do it the natural way? Our pioneering approach has long been recognised and approved by parents, students, universities and fellow academics. It ensures that swimmers of all ages gain confidence in the water; ability is improved, and technique corrected, until students begin swimming beautifully and effortlessly.

Since we started in 1993, we have been successful in teaching hundreds of thousands of children to swim using a researched method and special techniques. This has been so successful that we are now have eight thousand students attending our classes each week.

We operate our pools from our HQ in London where we have a dedicated team of customer service assistants who will be able to recommend the best course for you. Our teachers, of which there are about 100, are placed in our pools around the UK and Scotland.

The training arm of our company, Swimming Nature Network, offers to train and partner with pools, health clubs and leisure centres. This has allowed us to implement our swimming programmes, whilst our principles and techniques have expanded.
