Learning invaluable life skills

Lifeguard Qualification

As an approved Royal Lifesaving Society Training Centre, you are invited to undertake lifeguard training at QM to gain an internationally recognised qualification. You’ll learn valuable skills which you can use throughout your life.

Lifeguard Training at Queen Margaret’s is an enrichment activity which allows girls in the Sixth Form to undertake the National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (NPLQ) Award. The course promotes teamwork, decision making and leadership skills and can also be used towards the Skills & Service elements of the Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. Learning the value of working in a team and life skills such as First Aid, the course provides an opportunity to progress to a career within the leisure industry.

The National Pool Lifeguard course was very interesting and has allowed me to gain a new qualification which I can use in the future.
