The Cultural Competence Program is directly aimed at staff working in the aquatic and community recreation sector.

It is designed to enable workers to gain a better, broader and deeper understanding of the needs of communities from other countries when it comes to attending an aquatic facility, accessing a public swimming pool and being involved in a formal swimming program.

For many people from diverse cultures and backgrounds, these seemingly simple interactions can be daunting. Preparedness of the aquatic sector will help deliver a positive experience at the pool…one which results in a fun, friendly and safe experience.

Completing the program will ensure aquatic sector staff gain practical skills and cultural-specific knowledge that they can apply at the workplace and in everyday life.

On top of this, being a Culturally Qualified Centre can assist your Aquatic Centre to attract new markets as well as meet growing governance and community service obligations.
