The start of something extraordinary

Self Reflection

Self reflection is a really important part of everything we do. Reflecting helps us to identify what has worked well for us in our swimming classes and what we can try to do differently. When you have new staff training as buddy teachers, encourage them to keep a journal of what they are learning in the pool. Get them to note down what they are enjoying and any questions they have. This can be a great way to support their learning and enables them to critically reflect on their learning experiences. It also helps managers to identify future learning needs for each individual person.
