Meet your Aquatic Educators

Our Learn to Swim instructors and coaches are all accredited with Swim Australia or Austswim, and are required to undertake yearly professional development. 

Instructors all hold CPR qualifications and also attend in-house training sessions each term to maintain up-to-date knowledge of our program and any developments within the wider Aquatics industry. 

A number of our staff  also hold qualifications specific to babies and toddlers, competitive strokes and higher coaching levels. In addition, many of our staff hold pool lifeguard, first aid and bronze medallion qualifications. 


We have several Glennie students completing their traineeships at with Glennie Aquatics. This means that your child receives more attention and swim time. Trainees also gain valuable work experience, qualifications and an understanding of working with children.
