Following an external quality assurance audit, the leisure team met all the requirements of the RLSS. South Norfolk Council’s Cabinet Member, Cllr Kim Carsok, said:

“I’m incredibly proud of the team who have put in so much hard work to receive the highest possible rating from the RLSS. Our staff are highly qualified and are using their skills to train people from other organisations too.”

As an Approved Training Provider, the Council’s leisure team can continue to deliver Royal Life Saving Society qualifications including, National Pool Lifeguard Qualification, National Rescue Award for Swimming Teachers and Coaches, Emergency First Aid at Work, First Aid at Work, Paediatric First Aid, ongoing lifeguard training and qualification renewal courses. Cllr Carsok added:
