Shortage of swimming instructors following Olympics

The £19m Olympic standard swimming pool in Corby is struggling to cope with demand after London 2012 because it can not get enough instructors.


Corby Borough Council said it had a waiting list of 300 children wanting lessons, but over the last six months it had failed to find any properly qualified people for the posts.


The council is now starting an apprenticeship scheme.


It hopes the scheme will help meet the shortfall in swimming instructors.
