How A Part Time Job Has Turned into A Passion + Career

Online media publication The Fold Southern Highlands caught up with Liz after her class [+ the super cute dinosaur and mermaid songs she sang with the preschool-aged kids] to chat about life as a swimming instructor, what she loves about it so much and got some awesome advice for parents on what to consider when selecting a swim school for their child. Read what The Fold discovered and enjoy their awesome photos!

Maybe it’s because we were at Aquabliss Frensham to catch up with Liz while she was finishing teaching a class of cute little preschoolers that were just all so adorable!
Or maybe it was because you can tell Liz really loves what she’s doing.
Maybe it was the chilled atmosphere of the parents watching, knowing their kids were in safe hands…. whatever it was, when we walked into the Learn to Swim school at Aquabliss, it made us want to sign up to become a swim teacher!
Liz has been with Aquabliss Frensham since 2016, when she stepped completely away from her previous career and skillset to become a Swimming Instructor.
Seven years later, she’s now Pool Deck Supervisor and has taught hundreds of children and adults to become more skilled and confident in the water.

1. Why did you decide to become a swim teacher? It’s quite different to your original career, isn’t it?

It is. I got a degree in Economics and Management in the UK and worked in a leadership role at a consulting firm before I moved to the Highlands.
I’d always enjoyed working with kids. When I was younger, I would go and do stints at Camp America in the summer camps in the States, and I really enjoyed that.
After I had our youngest son here in the Highlands, I was a stay-at-home mum for a while but was looking to do something while he was in preschool, so I started training here in 2015, became qualified and started working at Aquabliss Frensham in 2016.
I’ve been here ever since.

2. Were you ever a competitive swimmer?

No, never… I’ve always loved the water and being in and around it, but I was never a serious swimmer.
That’s what I liked about the opportunity to become a swim teacher.
You didn’t have to have that sort of background. You can transition from an office job or being a stay-at-home mum like I did, with the support of Aquabliss and training.

3. So, you started as a trainee and then worked/swam your way up, right?

Initially, I did a few mornings a week which was fantastic for fitting in and around family commitments and the kids.
As my youngest got older, I picked up a few more shifts and taught a number of different ages, from toddlers to teens to adults, gaining more qualifications around those areas.
I progressed into the role of Pool Deck Supervisor, which means I’m spending more time assessing the children in the classes, working out what milestones they’re achieving or what they need to work on to move up to the next level.
I communicate with the parents and also the other swim teachers, giving feedback about their performance or chatting about the children and what we need to do to help the kids improve.
I’m still in the pool, though!
I teach on Friday mornings and do a coaching shift on Tuesday afternoon. It’s important to keep practicing and learning, and I do love what I do too.

4. So, you’d definitely recommend becoming a swim teacher to someone who was thinking about it?

If you’ve got a passion for swimming, working with people – especially children – and you’re looking for work that can fit in around your life, whether that be family, other work, uni or another job, it’s ideal.
Start with the first qualification, which is the basic Learn to Swim qualification and take it from there.
If you start working with Aquabliss while you’re training, currently they reimburse the cost of your qualification after a set period, and you get paid for your training hours too.
It’s a great way to earn and learn.

5. That’s a great benefit….

It’s not just that. Aquabliss Frensham is a great place to work.
You can feel it when you first walk in. It’s a great environment.
The teachers are happy and enjoying what they’re doing, so the kids and parents are happy too.
Everyone here is really passionate about their job.
They want to be here. They want to be in the water. They want to see the students’ progress. It’s very rewarding.

6. Well, you’ve been here seven years now so that’s saying something….

I’m now coaching kids in the main pool who, several years ago, I taught in the Learn to Swim pool.
It’s funny when I see families out and about shopping, and the little kids get confused as to why I’m not all wet and in the pool.
They seem to think I live in the pool, so they are shocked when they see me at the supermarket!
But one of the most important reasons I do what I do [and its why most of the teachers here are in the job too] is because we’re teaching people a really important life skill.
A skill that they may have to call on to save their own life – or someone else’s.
One of our teachers recently told me about a student of theirs who fell into a pool while the family was at a friends’ place.
He immediately turned around and got himself out. He was fine. And that’s because of the important skills we teach, especially to the little ones.
Saving themselves becomes second nature.
That’s the most rewarding part.

7. Wow, you’re right. When you put it like that, it has so much more meaning.

And of course, there’s the fun stuff too…. a baby covered his ears while I was singing in the pool, which caused us all to have a good laugh.
The preschoolers sing a song at the end of their class before they jump in the water and turn back around to get to the edge, and they get to make up whatever they would like to sing about. They sing about the funniest things. One preschooler started singing about eyeballs! That age is so much fun.

8. What advice would you give to parents about choosing a swim school for their child?

I’m going to list these as they’re all really important points:

9. Thanks Liz! To finish off, what do you love most about your job?

I can’t choose one!
I enjoy seeing the preschoolers’ happy faces in the water and splashing around with babies and their carers, laughing and singing songs together.
Watching the progression of children is fantastic. I’ve had children who were three when they started with me, and now they’re swimming 50 metres at our Dolphin level.
Working with the parents and receiving positive feedback and gratitude from them. It really feels like a team effort when we’re all working towards giving the kids these vital life skills – I love being part of that team.
It really is a fun, challenging and rewarding job that makes a meaningful difference.
Amazing, thank you so much, Liz!

Thank You to The Fold Southern Highlands

Aquabliss would like to thank the whole team at The Fold Southern Highlands for this great article and photos. Thank you for highlighting the importance of learning to swim. And thank you for promoting how easy it can be to become a swim teacher. A job where every swim teacher can help to save a life in every single lesson they teach. How rewarding is that!

Being a great swim teacher isn’t just about having lots of experience in the pool and being newly trained provides some significant benefits. Here’s why we don’t underestimate a newly qualified swim teacher.

Identifying what matters most

An effective swim teacher doesn’t need heaps of actual swim teaching experience. They don’t even need to be a great swimmer. And the finite technicalities of how kids learn to swim, that swim science, is something we can teach newbies, and usually very easily.
It’s having the relevant soft skills that’s critical – those soft skills are what matter the most.
Some of the soft skills we look for when recruiting include the ability to connect with children, empathise with them, motivate them. People with a passion for teaching as well as learning.
We hire people who’ve had their patience tested. We want effective communicators and problem solvers. People who love kids and can earn their trust. Those who can negotiate with children without getting into a tug-of-war.

Experience from outside the pool

It might surprise some parents that those all-important critical soft skills don’t have to be cultivated in the pool.
Some of our newly qualified teachers are parents/grandparents; many are older brothers and sisters. A lot of our new swim teachers have worked endless hours in child-related roles, from child-minding gigs or scout leaders, to working at sports or school holiday camps. Some of our young student teachers are at university, training to be primary/secondary school teachers or doctors, undertaking “on-the-job” training as part of their studies.

All these paid or voluntary roles provide heaps of teaching opportunities and lots of time to practise relevant soft skills, meaning our newbies are swimming with experience!

Off the starting blocks

A newly trained teacher has a lot to offer your little fish:

Fresh learnings

They’ve just completed their training, so everything learnt is fresh in their memory.

Most up to date

They’re up to date with the latest swim industry teaching techniques, research and best practices.

Creative & innovative

They’ve just been exposed to many other enthusiastic newbies, all sharing their latest ideas. This can help breathe new life into, or help revitalise, an existing curriculum.

New perspectives

New teachers often have a new way of looking at things, which they can use to identify gaps that sometimes veteran teachers can’t see. A fresh set of eyes.

Highly motivated & energized

They’re highly motivated to prove themselves. With bucket loads of enthusiasm and energy, helping to inspire students, sometimes in ways veteran teachers can’t.

No bad habits

It happens in all industries and to the best of us. Someone can have a ton of experience, but they can also have their fair share of bad habits.

Quality control

Aquabliss would never allow an unqualified teacher to be solely responsible for a class.
Our teachers are independently trained and accredited by leading industry associations such as AustSwim or Swim Australia, who are highly regarded within the swim industry.
In addition to the compulsory practical in-water training, we also provide extra training to teachers to ensure they know the ins and outs of the Aquabliss swim curriculum.
Plus, regardless of swim teaching experience, a Pool Deck Supervisor monitors every lesson. Yes! Every. Single. Lesson!
Whilst the Pool Deck Supervisor stays dry poolside, newly qualified teachers will sometimes have a “Floater” in the pool with them. A very experienced teacher, providing the newbie teacher with access to actual hands-on in-water experienced help, if needed.
So, rest assured, your child will be in good hands, and sometimes more than one pair!

Trainee pipeline

As a swim school, we aren’t just focused on teaching students how to swim well. We’re also committed to supporting the learn to swim industry by helping to get new teachers qualified. They do a great job, and we need more of them.
We look forward to you supporting the swim industry too, by celebrating our new teachers and appreciating the strengths they bring to the pool.

How does having more make-up spots to book into sound?

Great uh, more opportunities for your child to catch up on a missed swim lesson!

Plus, we’ve got the inside scoop on improving your chances of grabbing one of these valuable spots.

In our previous blog introducing make-ups, we explained what make-ups are, why we offer them (not all swim schools do) and why we limit the number of make-up lessons that can be taken in a year.

Plus, we covered the topic we get asked about the most – why make-up spots are subject to availability.

Because that’s such a regular question, in this blog, we’re reaching out to explain what you can do to increase the number of available make-up spots. Yes you have that power!

We can’t ever guarantee availability, but we can guarantee, with your help, that the number of available spots will increase.

Let's Make Up

However, before diving into that, it’s important to revisit why we can’t guarantee availability. 

Why is that important?  

Because understanding how make-ups become available in the first place is key to increasing their availability.

Why make-ups are subject to availability

Make-up spots are vacant spots in other classes, when a class is not fully booked, or a parent has cancelled a swimming lesson (sickness, holidays). 

Therefore it’s impossible to anticipate how many vacant spots might become available that can be booked for a make-up lesson.

Plus, not all available spots will be suitable for your child. 

This is because of the further limitation that a make-up lesson can only be booked into a class that is an equivalent level to your child’s regular class.  

There’s no point placing any child in a class below or above their skill level because they won’t be catching up on anything. 

And you won’t be getting value for money, which defeats the purpose of having make-ups in the first place, to minimise some of those out-of-pocket expenses.

Why Make-Ups Subject To Availability

Why we can’t guarantee a make-up with your child’s regular teacher

We know there’s often a special bond between student and teacher. But for the same reasons we can’t guarantee the availability of make-up classes, we can’t guarantee a make-up lesson with your child’s regular teacher. 

We cannot control when your child’s regular teacher might have a spare spot in an equivalent class level. Who knows when a child might get sick, and we don’t control when parents take their kids on holidays.

Increasing the availability of make-ups

By now, you’ve probably worked out how important it is to cancel your child’s regular swimming lesson if they can’t make it, rather than just not show up.

Your cancelled lesson becomes a make-up spot available for another parent to book into.

Every week our booking system records “no-shows”, kids we expected but didn’t attend.

And we see a considerable increase in no-shows during school holidays.

If we think your child is attending their class, we can’t offer that lesson to another swimmer for a make-up lesson, and we don’t like seeing empty spots go to waste.


So, here’s the key point….

More make-up lessons will become available when parents remember and find the time to cancel their child’s learn to swim lesson, especially when holidays have been booked in advance or when a child’s sickness is not last minute.

So please, jump online and cancel your child’s swimming lesson when you know they can’t make their regular class. 

Even if you’ve missed the cut-off deadline or you’ve already reached your quota, because cancelling allows another parent the chance of using your spot for a make-up.

Thank You

It’s easy to cancel a lesson

We understand parenting is frantic sometimes, and things can happen last minute, so you can’t always notify us by the deadline. But we also know that some of those no-show spots could have quickly been cancelled via our online portal, especially most of the no-shows appearing in our booking system during school holidays.

Watch this 1-minute clip to see how easy it is to cancel a lesson ONLINE.

If, for some reason, you can’t get into the system online, then just contact us.

The cancellation deadline

And if you’re wondering what the deadline is, we publish that information in one spot, here on our T&Cs page. Just in case the quota and expiry dates have changed by the time you read this article.

Remember - no make-ups for no-shows

It’s often said that you don’t get something for nothing. Just like your child who must put in time and effort to learn how to swim, you must put in time and effort to have a make-up voucher added to your account from your allowed quota.

But you don’t have to do as much as your little swimmer! You just have to notify us of your child’s absence by the due deadline. If you don’t, you won’t be eligible for a make-up for that cancelled lesson.

Record Absence

This is an important point to repeat.

Even if you’ve already maxed out your own make-up quota, or you’ve missed the deadline, please still cancel.

Whilst you won’t be entitled to a make-up voucher, you can still help out another parent by allowing them the opportunity to book a make-up lesson into your cancelled spot. 

Please don’t let a swimming lesson go to waste that another parent can use.

How to improve your chances of finding a make-up spot

So here it is, the inside scoop. 

Our best tips on how to grab a make-up spot.

1. Book ONLINE!.  
Our best and bigger tips!

If you wait to contact us, or we can’t attend to your query immediately, someone else has more time to book into what could have been your spot!

Watch this 1-minute clip to see how easy it is to book a make-up lesson ONLINE.

Book Online Tip

2. Be flexible. Consider booking a make-up with a different teacher. And if we have another swim school close by, we might even be able to slot you in there. Our teachers teach the same curriculum across all our swim schools.

And a different teacher can be a great thing! Kids need to learn to cope with change, a fresh set of eyes can sometimes spot something others have missed and a fresh perspective can spur things along.

There’s more about the benefits of having a different teacher in this blog. And we’ve got some great hints and tips here to help you manage your little one if they’re ever concerned about having a different swim teacher.

Fear of Unknown

3. School holidays. Take advantage of when others are away and be thankful to those diligent parents who have cancelled their child’s learn to swim lessons in advance. (Oh, and please be one of those diligent parents helping someone else out whenever you’re away on holidays – thank you.)

4. Cooler months. Whilst we advocate swimming all year round, in our toasty indoor pools, with water temperatures up to 32 degrees, some parents cease swimming lessons over the cooler months. So, make-up availability can be higher during those months. And fitting in those make-up lessons over winter can be a great way to start boosting skills for summer! (Remember it takes time to learn how to swim.)

5. Keep checking ONLINE. We regularly receive lesson cancellations because family life is busy and sometimes things just don’t go according to plans. So, you never know when a slot might become available.

6. Keep checking right up to the cut-off time. Kids can get sick at the last minute, and some parents hold off cancelling until just before the deadline, hoping for a miraculous recovery. So, keep checking ONLINE.

7. Back-to-back lesson. For older kids, who usually have a longer concentration span, you might even be able to sneak in a back-to-back lesson. So, whilst your fish is in the water, it’s easy to check ONLINE to see if there’s a free spot straight after their regular class.

Please pay it forward or give it back

If you don’t cancel your child’s lesson by the deadline, you won’t be entitled to a make-up lesson, but you won’t be the only one missing out.

Unhappy Kids Can’t Use No-Show Spots

If you’ve already enjoyed a make-up lesson, give back to the system by cancelling your child’s swimming lesson when they can’t make it. 

Even if you’ve used up all your make-up allocation. 

OK, so cancelling won’t give you another make-up lesson voucher, but we know you’ll feel great about helping someone else out.

And if you’ve never booked a make-up before, pay it forward when your child can’t make their lesson. Allow someone else to use your regular spot.  Because one day YOU might be the parent looking to book a make-up lesson.

Not currently swimming with us?

Please take a look at our programs or contact us. We’d love you to be part of our extended Aquabliss family.

Reduce some of those out-of-pocket situations when your child can’t make their regular swimming lesson (sickness, holidays). 

Our make-up system can sometimes help swimming lessons fit into your schedule when plans need to change.

And when you cancel your child’s swimming lesson early enough, you’re giving another parent the time and opportunity to use your cancelled spot for their child’s catch-up lesson. Thank you!

Sorry if you thought this blog was about waterproof makeup. For tips on pool-proof make-up, research what synchronised swimmers use. There are some fascinating articles out there!

Defining make-ups

Make-up lessons, or “make-ups” for short, are catch-up swimming lessons your child can enjoy

Later in this blog, we’ll cover why those provisos are important.

Make Up Lessons Are Catch Up Lessons

Not every swim school provides make-ups

Some swim schools follow the educational school or kindergarten business model, where fees are paid in advance, and no refunds or make-up classes are offered for non-attendance.

Why we offer make-ups

At Aquabliss, we understand that sometimes things get in the way of swimming lessons, such as holidays or medical appointments.

And to secure your regular spot, you’ve paid for those learn to swim lessons in advance, so you hate throwing that money away when your little fish can’t make it to the swimming pool. 

We get it. Especially if you’re doing the right thing and keeping your child at home when sick – thank you!

Thank You for Cancelling Lessons

So, we offer make-ups because we want to work with you, as much as we possibly can, to accommodate these special circumstances. If we can, we want to help ease your stress and prevent your child from falling behind.

Afterall, we believe every swimming lesson counts towards making a safer swimmer.

But there are limitations to our make-up system. We don’t (and can never) have an endless supply of make-up spots available and consequently you don’t have an endless supply of make-up vouchers.

So read on to learn what those limitations are and why.

Make-up lessons are limited & they expire

There’s a limit to how many make-ups each swimmer can qualify for each year. And this is based on the number of times a week a child is booked in for regularly scheduled swimming lessons. 

For e.g., learn to swim well with lessons twice a week, the maximum make-ups that can be taken in a year is doubled.

Swim More Often Quota Increases

The main reason for a quota, and an expiry date that prevents unused make-ups from being rolled over, is because the number of make-up lessons is dependant on (and limited to) the number of vacant spots in class.

Make-Ups Don't Rollover

Also, learning to swim takes discipline, and we know that kids learn best when they attend lessons regularly. And if we didn’t limit the number of make-ups, there’s a risk that some parents might be tempted to skip a few more lessons here and there. 

This is evidenced by swim school industry research which shows that schools that allow make-up lessons have more missed classes. Swim schools that don’t, have lower absences.

The quota and expiry date

We publish that information in just one spot, here on our T&Cs page. Just in case the quota and expiry dates have changed by the time you read this article.

Why make-up classes are subject to availability

It might seem strange that we offer a quota of make-ups per year, but we can’t guarantee you will be able to use them. 

Read on to understand why.

Equivalant Class Level

A make-up lesson is only possible when there’s a vacant spot in another class. And that class needs to be equivalent to your child’s level.

There’s no point placing any child in a class below or above their skill level because they won’t be catching up on anything. And you won’t be getting value for money, which defeats the purpose of having make-ups in the first place, to minimise those out-of-pocket expenses.

A child placed in a lower-level class for a make-up lesson will likely get bored as they’ve already learnt those skills, and some bored students can sometimes be disruptive.

If a make-up lesson is booked into a class above a child’s level, they’ll likely be out of their depth (no pool pun intended!) and there’s a risk they can lose their confidence, become overwhelmed and even be stressed. Plus, the regular students in that class might lose valuable learning time if the teacher must spend more time with a nervous newbie.

So, here’s a critical point……

Because we can’t control when a parent decides to enrol, seizing an unsold spot, or when a child can’t use their spot (sickness, on holidays etc.), it’s impossible for us to guarantee how many make-ups will be up for grabs each year.

Make-Ups Are Vacant Spots

It’s a challenging balancing act, and the supply and demand can also be impacted by such things as staff shortages, business peaks and lurgy seasons like the flu. 

So, we encourage you to only miss a lesson when it’s absolutely unavoidable.

Make-Ups Are Limited

Increasing make-up availability and hints on how to grab one

You can help increase the number of make-up spots available. This blog explains how and has some great hints and tips on improving your chances of grabbing one.

Why not use this week as a prompter to talk about safety and well-being with children. We’ve included some tips on how to start such a conversation.

Organised by NAPCAN (National Association for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect), National Child Protection Week is an annual event that usually starts on the first Sunday of September.

Aquabliss proudly supports National Child Protection Week because its focus is at the very heart of what we do at our swim schools. Our child safety policies and related staff training are an active part of our business.

Whilst the theme changes every year, the week’s core focus is always on how everyone can work together to build communities supporting children and families. Helping kids to be safe and happy.

A prompter to talk about safety & well-being

NAPCAN encourages parents/guardians to use National Child Protection Week as an opportunity to start a conversation with children and families about feeling safe. 

Because in playing a part by ‘tuning in’ to children in everyday situations about SMALL worries, kids are much more likely to feel comfortable telling you if something BIG is wrong.

Talking with kids about safety & well-being

Here’s some excellent information and advice from NAPCAN:

Here at Aquabliss

Children are safest when they are listened to, respected, and believed in, and that’s our swim teachers’ relationship with students.

We use National Child Protection Week as a focal point for management to review our child protection policies and retrain staff. We get busy running a business, and we know how busy parenting can be, so having dedicated weeks such as these are great prompts for prioritising or revisiting essential responsibilities.

We also support child safety and the well-being of children in the community by providing family-friendly work conditions for parents.

Next Steps

We look forward to you being part of the Aquabliss family, helping to keep kids safe and happy.

You don’t need to cancel your child’s lesson when a substitute teacher has been assigned to take your child’s class. Or avoid booking a make-up lesson in a class taken by a different teacher. Why?

Because the sub or different teacher will be another qualified Aquabliss teacher, equally trained in delivering the same lesson. 

And there’s cause for celebration because there are some significant plus factors to having a sub or different teacher too!

1. Change management skills
Consistency and trust-building are essential when learning to swim, but teacher changes can allow your child to learn how to cope with new situations and be more flexible and adaptable. Experiencing and working through change will also help develop resilience skills.

Anxiety, worry, fear etc., can be a reaction to the unknown, and to cope, many children use their imagination to fill in the gaps, to make the unknown known.

So new experiences can help children understand that their minds can sometimes exaggerate and that the bad things they feared would happen, well, they usually don’t.

Having a different teacher can be a great adventure for your child, where they can fill in anxious gaps with positive memories.

2. A fresh approach
Learning plateaus are common in any subject or sport. Even veteran teachers can face roadblocks with long-term students. So, drum roll …..substitute teachers to the rescue!

All Aquabliss teachers undergo the same training and learn the same Aquabliss curriculum, but their different personalitiy will shape their own unique teaching styles.

Just as everyone learns differently, our teachers can teach the same thing differently. A different approach, maybe a different way of explaining something, might just be what your child needs.

Or the sub teacher’s fresh eyes just spot something others have missed.

Teachers love it when they return and discover their student has learnt something new from a sub or, even better, aced a new skill.

Having a sub allows someone new to achieve something new for your child.

3. Relationship-building skills
If your child is likely to shy away from strangers, having a different teacher is a great chance to work through that experience with them.

Our swim teachers are experienced in dealing with fear and nerves. After all, it’s their day job. Helping kids overcome fear, manage their anxieties, and become more confident is what they do in every single lesson.

Having a sub means your child can practice their relationship-building skills with someone trained to help them.

4. Self-reliance
Strong bonds often develop between a student and teacher, especially with a teacher who has helped a child overcome a fearful challenge. Some parents believe their child would never cope with a different teacher.

Yes, trust is essential when learning to swim, but some children can become overly reliant on a particular teacher – who won’t be there if the child gets into trouble in the water.

Swim safety is about children learning skills they can use for themselves.

Having a sub can prove to your child that they can still pull off those swim moves with another teacher.

5. Boost competitiveness
Being in a new class with a different teacher can ignite a competitive spirit. Some kids are out to impress, keen to get the new teacher’s attention; others are just oozing with excitement at trying something new and are energised to succeed.

Having a sub can unleash your child’s competitive edge.

Next Steps

If your little fish is concerned about having a substitute teacher, there are some great hints and tips in this blog that you might find helpful.

Don’t take away the opportunity for your child to learn valuable life-changing skills, in addition to life-saving ones. Don’t cancel your child’s lesson because their regular teacher is away. They are too young to understand the positives, so let them benefit from your knowledge and experience.
