MBABANE – A liSwati living in the United Kingdom, is making strides by teaching children how to swim in a town called Cheltenham, England.

The coach who was identified by her first name of Janice was born in the kingdom, where she was encouraged to learn to swim at a young age.
She thoroughly enjoyed it, thrived in the pool, and became a lifelong fan of the sport. She competed in high school swimming meets, before going on to represent her country in the national youth team.“I’ve had the good fortune to witness the positive effects swimming has had and continues to have in my life,” she was quoted saying by the Institute of Swimming in England. The swimming coach mentioned that she wanted to share her swimming skills with his family especially after the grandson was born in 2019.


“My grandson was born in 2019, and I wanted to share my skills with my family and find out about becoming a swimming teacher, so I looked online for courses that would allow her to know more about the sport,” she said. She found the Swim England Qualifications page through a search and discovered that the SEQ Level 1 Swimming Assistant and SEQ Level 2 Teaching Swimming courses taking place near her were held at Leisure at Cheltenham. The swimming coach enrolled for the Institute of Swimming courses and completed her SEQ Level 1 Swimming Assistant (Teaching) Course in 2020 and SEQ Level 2 Swimming Teacher Course in 2021. She said she is very happy with her decision to change careers and believes she now has a better quality of life.


“I have access to flexible teaching hours that allow me to work around my schedule and enjoy the satisfaction of achieving a work-life balance while teaching a great and vital life skill,” Janice said. She said she has enjoyed teaching her own lessons. “I especially like watching the children advance through the Swim England Learn to Swim Awards and see how their confidence grows as they accomplish and get stronger in their swimming practice.” Janice also understands that everyone is unique, and learners can respond differently to the strokes and learning practices. “You must also have patience and the ability to motivate and connect at all levels,” she added.
