Newhaven’s Lifeguards

newhaven school lifeguard training

Over the past 5 weeks, a group of our students from across our sites have been taking part in their Level 3 National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (NPQL) at Shooters Hill College.

Students were required to pass three units:

  • Unit 1 – Swimming pool safety operation & supervision
  • Unti 2 – Pool lifeguard emergency rescue skills
  • Unit 3 – First aid, illness and injury management in a pool environment.

We are proud to say that we now have three qualified lifeguards with a qualification to gain employment within the field.

Over the next few weeks, these students will have the opportunity to meet with a recruiter within the field to hopefully secure part-time employment as lifeguards within the local area.

It has been great to see the students take full advantage of this opportunity, add to their skill set and take a step closer to entering the working world.
