Telford & Wrekin Training Services

Meet The Trainers

Steve Carter - I have been employed by Telford & Wrekin Council since 1997 and during this time I have gained substantial experience working across a number of leisure sites. Starting as a casual Lifeguard in 1997, becoming contracted in 1999 in the role of Senior Leisure, National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (NPLQ) Trainer Assessor/Duty Manager, Assistant Manager and becoming site manager of Newport Swimming Pool in 2008.
In 1999 I qualified as a Royal Lifesaving Society (RLSS) UK Trainer Assessor. Training new and existing lifeguards for over 16 years across 4 swimming pool sites. In 2015 I was recognised as Trainer Assessor of the year by IQL UK. The judges were impressed with my dedication to delivering lifesaving training, both at Wellington Civic & Leisure Centre and across the region. The high standards of training helped equip two members of staff with the skills needed to save the life of a customer in 2014.
