New online VI swimming course

British Blind Sport Further Extends Commitment to Education With Online ‘Visually Impaired Swimming’ Course:

British Blind Sport has been working in partnership with the Amateur Swimming Association, Action for Blind People, New College Worcester and the Institute of Swimming to develop a new interactive online CPD (i-Learn).

The i-Learn aims to provide support, ideas and guidance for anyone involved with swimming on how to include people with a visual impairment more effectively, and is free to complete.

It contains a series of interactive activities that will enable coaches, teachers, parents and carers to

  • Develop a better understanding of the needs of people with a visual impairment
  • Apply their skills and knowledge to meet the needs of people with a visual impairment
  • Understand the various classifications of visual impairment
  • Identify where they can obtain further support


The course is available free of charge and can be accessed here
