Changes to the South East Region Bursary Scheme for Teachers and Coaches
Posted on 02 Dec 2013 at 17:50 by Bryony Gibbs (0 user comment)
The scheme has been extended so that more bursaries will be available in special circumstances.
The South East Region provides bursaries to applicants from swim21 accredited clubs towards the cost of teacher and coach ASA/UKCC & SCUK courses. The overall aim is to improve the standard of teaching and coaching within the Region and as a result improve the standard of our athletes throughout the sport. Normally only three candidates from a club can receive a bursary award in one financial year, however for some clubs and some disciplines this has resulted in too few people booking for a course and the course being cancelled.
To tackle this problem clubs may apply for additional bursaries but they must put forward a case as to why this is required. This is aimed at areas where it is difficult to get enough candidates to run a course, such as the Isle of Wight, Jersey and Guernsey, or courses for the disciplines with fewer clubs (diving, water polo and synchro). However other circumstances may also be considered.
A copy of the updated criteria and application form is avaliable here.

In line with the recommendations of the ASA, the South East Region will adopt a dual approach in support of disability swimming.
- Disabled swimmers will be encouraged to swim alongside able-bodied swimmers in “mainstream” competitions; multi-disability events will be included in Regional championships.
- Specialised disability events will be used to encourage the growth of disability swimming.
The South East Region’s responsibility for competition will extend to ensuring that all swimmers have the opportunity to compete at their own level, through the provision of appropriate licensed meets.
Where there is a need, the Region will support meets that are not financially viable.
