Get Into Lifeguarding

Get into Lifeguarding is a partnership initiative delivered by The Prince’s Trust and supported by Edinburgh Leisure.

The Get into Lifeguarding course is a fully funded opportunity that provides young people 16-30 and that are not currently in full time work or education with the opportunity to gain their RLSS National Pool Lifeguard qualification and a guaranteed job interview with Edinburgh Leisure.

The NPLQ covers all elements of Pool Rescue Techniques, Lifeguarding Theory, First Aid and CPR. The course is physically demanding and will include swimming to set times, lifting casualties and diving to the deepest part of the swimming pool, so applicants must be a confident swimmer.
