Youth Aquatic Accreditation Program
This program provides financial assistance to young people aged 17 to 25 years to undertake accreditation to ensure they are qualified to teach swimming and water safety. The new Program has been supported through the Victorian Budget 2022-23 to deliver the Victorian Government’s Our Promise, your future: Victoria’s youth strategy 2022-27.
The program provides young people with an entry point to allow them to pursue or continue career opportunities in the aquatic sector. It will contribute to supporting the capability of the aquatic sector to support the accreditation of more teachers.
The program has three funding categories:
- Category 1: Up to $325 per person towards SISSS00112 – Swimming and Water Safety Teacher
- Category 2: Up to $285 per person towards SISCAQU011 – Promote development of infants and toddlers in an aquatic environment
- Category 3: Up to $195 per person for renewal of Swimming and Water Safety Teacher.
