OneRen operates a successful Learn to Swim Scheme focusing on service excellence in the safe delivery of swimming lessons. The scheme is divided into different levels arranged around a Sea World concept with classes in each level to suit all. The Sea World theme is used to give young people incentives for progression while learning to swim via awards for achieving set targets within the appropriate level.
