NATIONAL BENCHMARKS FOR SWIMMING AND WATER SAFETY

Introduction

The Australian Water Safety Council has Established three National Benchmarks for Swimming and Water Safety Education as the desired competency standards every Australian should have the opportunity to acquire and maintain.

The National Benchmarks provide a clear description of student learning and are therefore, a useful starting point or driver for the development of teaching and learning programs. The benchmarks allow teachers to monitor student learning and to make judgements about student progress and achievement.

These National Benchmarks for Swimming and Water Safety Education can be achieved by progressing through the development milestones of the National Swimming and Water Safety Framework.
