The DSWA organises in-house training courses for members interested in running short courses for beginners.  The courses are available to those holding at least the Intermediate/Level 2 certificate and details are sent to those eligible to attend, as and when dates are arranged.  The course takes place over a two-day period, usually a weekend, and gives candidates the opportunity to practice instructional techniques and to plan training events.  Please note this course is not an externally approved teaching qualification although can prove to be a useful starting point for further study.  Individuals interested in such courses should contact either their local education authority or local colleges for full details of what is available in their area.

A list of DSWA Instructors is available and updated on an annual basis.
