As part of the Free Swimming Programme (FSP) the Government have allocated £5.8m per annum to the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) for the provision of 100,000 free swimming lessons and for the recruitment of a national network of County Swimming Coordinators.

The ASA does not provide specific free swimming teacher training courses. However, the ASA has invested £100,840 across 93 local authorities participating in free swimming lessons, which has provided swimming teachers with the opportunity to upgrade to level 2 qualifications.
