Halliwick Foundation Course - July 2022
A unique opportunity in Australia, for those with a passion for teaching swimming and an interest in making it accessible for anyone, particularly to people with disabilities.
Halliwick is an approach to teaching all people, in particular for those with physical and/or learning difficulties, to participate in water activities, to move independently in water, and to swim.
