Running a Business
Setting up a new swim school can be a very exciting prospect and can also be very daunting, especially if you don’t have anyone to help and support you.
You need all sorts of things:
Policies and Procedures; PSOP’s, Pool hire contracts, Contract & Public (& Civil) Liability insurance, Barring & Vetting, CRB, Employment contracts and insurance, H&S registration, Tax/VAT, Accountants, management & operations software, office equipment, marketing/PR/Advertising material etc. etc.
With the exception of PAS 81 (which is so basic as to be of little value) there is nowhere out there whee you can easily get the right information and support, and you end up re-inventing the wheel.
That’s just the business end – then you need teachers, and a Swimming Teaching Programme, so you know what to teach
The pitfalls can be considerable. The rewards can be wonderful.
Its worth getting it right from the start. Ask and we can help.
