Business Profile

About Me

My name is Joy and I run my own training and Education consultancy in Swindon, Wiltshire with over 17 years of experience. I have been a tutor for many years, delivering for Swim England (ASA) approved centres, STA, and UK Coaching (SCUK) as well as other sports and NGBs (National Governing Bodies). I am an avid learner myself, developing my own knowledge in a wide range of interests, which I am passionate about passing on to others. I also love challenges and finding solutions, which is why I love working and helping people who have additional and complex needs. I provide a vast amount of sports education, with lots of variety and applying a fun, and easy approach.

I originally qualified as a state-registered chiropodist in the 80s and have worked in both the NHS and private sectors with experience of delivering health education through different media platforms, such as Al Jazeera™ TV, Qatar Radio™, Gulf News™, and What's On™ magazine.

Within my Chiropody training, I studied 3 years of biomechanics and have developed a keen eye for detail that helps with analysis. I have worked as a swimming teacher both at home and overseas for more than 20 years, teaching babies through to adults, non-swimmers through to elite, and helping those with disabilities as well as providing Aquafit, Antenatal, Postnatal and Rehab classes. Over the years I have broadened my swimming consultancy to other sports such as fencing and gymnastics, as well as staff and individual training and assessments. I can also advise on first aid and more generic topics, like behaviour management, equality, safeguarding and additional needs.
