The Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS UK) has recently been working in partnership with Active Surrey and Freedom Leisure in order to jointly fund a number of female only lifeguard training sessions to increase representation of females within the industry.

The sessions that took place at Tandridge Leisure Centre near Crawley, enabled the group of ladies to complete their National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (NPLQ) with two participants already successfully securing employment as lifeguards and are supporting local Rookie Lifeguard sessions.  

Female lifeguards training to deliver CPR

Matt Croxall, Senior of Membership and Field Operations at RLSS UK, said “Female only sessions such as this give women the opportunity to be trained and participate in lifesaving activity where they may not have felt comfortable doing so previously, particularly where certain cultural barriers exist. 

“We are continually striving at RLSS UK to be as welcoming and inclusive as possible, so initiatives such as this really do help us to reach new audiences. The intention is that these newly trained lifeguards will eventually progress to become Trainer Assessors and go on to deliver their own female only NPLQ sessions, therefore giving more and more women the chance to become lifeguards in the future.”

RLSS UK are keen to support similar opportunities throughout the UK and Ireland, so are calling for any Trainer Assessors who would be interested in delivering female only sessions or helping RLSS UK to deliver lifeguard training to harder to reach communities in any other way, to get in touch with the membership team.
