RESEARCH:

Review of Swim and Survive programmes to establish a more unified approach: Final report

UNIVERSITY OR ORGANISATION: Sport New Zealand , ACC

 

SUBJECT: Aquatic Education, Competence and Swimming
TYPE: Report
DATE: 2012


Providing Swim and Survive programmes is the responsibility of a number of organisations and agencies in New Zealand. This report focuses on Swim and Survive programmes, how they are delivered in New Zealand, and how improved coordination and collaboration can be implemented to ensure funding for Swim and Survive programmes is maximised. In conducting this research the researchers observed that the funding, design and delivery of Swim and Survive programmes has input from a range of organisations thus requiring a great deal of collaboration at the local and national level among organisations involved in water safety education. It is also apparent that there is regional variation that takes into account community needs, the local aquatic environment, and the infrastructure and funding that is in place.
