The SwimSafe program in Danang has long enjoyed the support, expertise and enthusiasm of its senior trainers. These 7 senior trainers were identified as natural leaders from the first year of the program and each of them is in charge of a specific program location and the instructors that teach at that location.
Their exceptional commitment and contribution to the program since 2009 has been recognised with certificates this week. The senior trainers have produced 20 hours of training for the whole SwimSafe program already in 2012. They have each put between 10 and 15 additional hours of work in to preparing for these training workshops.
Feedback forms circulated at the training workshops held last week, reported very positive comments as to the content and nature of the training presentations and their relevance to this year’s upcoming season.
The excellent work of the senior trainers, the broader team of 110 instructors and the program staff all point to a successful 2012 season for SwimSafe Danang. The Danang Department of Education, the local operational partner, will officially launch the program in May with venue principals and district education officers involved.
