More than 100 educators and approved centre contacts attended the annual ASA Educator and Approved Centre Conference at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel on 15-16 October.
Jointly hosted by the ASA Awarding Body and Workforce Support Services, the ASA Educator and Approved Centre Conference provided approved centres with the opportunity to share best practice and facilitated an environment suitable for open discussion on thoughts and ideas for the future.
Delegates were also given a chance to listen to key speakers and engage in a variety of workshops to enhance their knowledge of the courses and CPDs available.
Sally Skipper, Programme Manager at the ASA, spoke about the changes that have been made to the ASA Learn to Swim Framework and updated delegates on the future products and services that are currently under development.
There was also the opportunity for delegates to observe useful technologies in action as well as get ‘hands on’ experience using them in various settings and scenarios to understand how they might benefit the work happening in their own facilities.
Ray Brogden, ASA Head of Workforce Development, said: “The ASA Educator and Approved Centre Conference is a great way for the ASA to engage with our dedicated approved centres and to update delegates on the future products and services that are currently under development.
“Once again it’s been a great partnership between the ASA Awarding Body and Workforce Support Services to bring together the dedicated community of individual educators and approved centres who are committed to delivering exceptional aquatics courses and CPD seminars across the industry.”
