Free NPLQ lifeguard training available this summer

29 May 2024

Throughout July and August, we're offering free lifeguard training to residents over 16.

Interested residents can apply to obtain their National Pool Lifeguard Qualification free of charge. It would normally cost £250 to £300.

Free places are available to those with availability to work on weekdays during term. In return, we'd like you to work for us as a fully qualified lifeguard.

95% of all UK pool lifeguards in the UK are qualified through the NPLQ which complies with industry requirements and is internationally recognised. The NPLQ qualification is a recruitment requirement for a wide array of leisure jobs.
