Charitable trust recognised for its swimming programme

We are delighted to announce we have been recognised for the quality and delivery of our swimming programme with a national accreditation.

We have been awarded the SwiMark Plus standard – the highest possible evaluation given by Scottish Swimming, the national governing body. 

SwiMark Plus means that we have been recognised as a swimming provider that has excelled at providing quality swimming lessons, a clear pathway from toddler and adult classes through to club swimming, adhering to safe practices with teachers who are licensed – with education programmes in place for instructors – as well as encouraging lifelong participation in a lifesaving skill.

Lee Cunningham, aquatics manager for Fife Sports and Leisure Trust, said: “The trust was SwiMark accredited and we are really proud to have reached the highest level of accreditation with the SwiMark Plus award. Ultimately, it means our customers, and parents looking to enrol their children in a swimming programme, can engage in the trust’s swimming programme knowing that it is a  quality provider and has met the highest national standards.

“The trust’s Learn to Swim programme continues to go from strength to strength, with record numbers of participants, attracting over 6,500 adults and youngsters to classes across Fife.”
