Information for Trainer/Assessors

SLSGB National Update 2014

SLSGB National Update 2014 will be held at the Hinton Firs Hotel, Bournemouth on the weekend of March 15th & 16th. Open for all Club officers, Trainers, Assessors and Coaches it’s not a weekend to miss and will bring you up to date with what’s happening within SLSGB.

This year’s event will be more practical as we have access to the Hotels indoor pool and will be a little more hands on (full programme still to be confirmed).
The main area of development this year is to carry on with the work done on our Lifeguard award and to up skill all trainers to the status of Trainer/Assessor.

Updating of all Trainers to Trainer/Assessor Status

As part of the National Update this year we want to take this opportunity to bring all Trainers up to the new Trainer Assessor status. If you are an existing Trainer under the old award it is compulsory that you sign up the Trainer Assessor update workshop. This will provide an opportunity to take part in practical scenarios emphasising the importance and move from training to trainer assessing, something we are piloting as part of the new unitised approach we are taking to our awards. This will be a valuable workshop that will ensure that all of our Trainers are aligned to the new Trainer Assessor status.
