“The team in Swansea are a fantastic example to other leisure providers, as they continue to strive to provide the best possible learn to swim environment for their customers and workforce.”

Available to all providers across the nation, the two-tiered accreditation has been launched to ensure the best quality learn to swim programmes are operating across the country.

The standard accreditation will enable providers to demonstrate compliance to industry standards and safeguarding guidelines in relation to learn to swim provision, while a Gold Accredited Provider will be recognised for excellence in governance, sustainability and effectiveness – the award demonstrates the provider is delivering the best possible Learn to Swim experience for all.

Jeremy Cole, General Manager at WNPS, said everyone at the pool was delighted to have achieved Swim Wales accreditation.

“As well as home to elite swimmers, we’re also proud to be a community pool offering lessons to all, whether you’re a nervous starter or an experienced swimmer looking forward to improving your skills or developing new ones.
