Everyone Active – which operates Saltburn Leisure Centre in partnership with Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council – has become the first national facility operator to gain the ASA quality mark for its swimming lesson programme.
The nationally recognised accreditation is awarded to swimming providers that have successfully shown they are providing learn to swim programmes that meet ASA and industry-wide standards. Everyone Active was awarded the accreditation following an independent assessment of its Learn to Swim scheme.
Jacqui Tillman, Everyone Active’s group swim manager, commented: “We are delighted to be the first leisure operator to receive the ASA Learn to Swim accreditation. It’s a fantastic achievement and a testament to our commitment to helping more children learn to swim and be active. Our scheme has proven hugely successful across all of our 78 aquatic site. We’re proud to say that we deliver lessons to over 100,000 children every week.”
Everyone Active was assessed on 30 elements of their provision, including how they implement their Learn to Swim programme, health and safety practices, safeguarding procedures and staff training.
Keith Sutton, head of the ASA’s Partnership Provider Programme, said: “Everyone Active has repeatedly demonstrated its commitment to providing good quality learn to swim provision across its sites and I am pleased this has been recognised with the ASA Accreditation.”
