Development Week Instructors
2017 CAMP INSTRUCTOR APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED
Outcomes will be released by 30th OCTOBER 2017.

Anglesea SLSC prides itself on the high quality of instruction provided by our volunteers during Development Week. Our instructors program has been restructured in 2017. There are two stages of being an instructor on camp, Year 1 and Year 2+.

Year 1 Instructors

In your first year as an instructor, you must first complete the Training Officer Certificate (TOC) course. The Training Instructors Weekend is an opportunity for new instructors to gain their Training Officer Certificate (TOC) on 9-10th December. This course is run by staff from LSV that come to Anglesea. This course runs over two days, and is a live-in weekend at the Anglesea club house.

In your first year, you can become a trainer of one of three awards;

  • Bronze Medallion

  • IRB Driver Certificate

  • First Aid

 

On camp, Year 1 instructors learn to teach in a range of different learning environments, both on and off the beach, with an emphasis on practical teaching. Not only does this opportunity allow trainees to step out of their comfort zone and develop teaching skills, but it helps develop leadership skills that transferable to a range of future endeavours within and outside lifesaving. Trainees are mentored by Senior Instructors and work collaboratively to plan lessons, deliver courses and manage a classroom.
