CONTINUOUS PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME FOR COACHES
Tennis Coach Ireland (TCI) works with Tennis Ireland on the coach Continuous Development Programme (CPD). All TCI members are informed of the programme and how it operates, and of ongoing CPD opportunities.
If a coach is not a member of TCI, but wishes to be involved in CPD (usually for Tennis Ireland Licensing purposes see note below), TCI will keep a record on their behalf of the points gained, if the coach informs TCI of the fact that they have accrued points, and provides the necessary evidence. Coaches who are not members of TCI are welcome to attend TCI CPD events – charges may apply.
FOR MEMBERS ONLY: TCI offers to examine and potentially ratify for CPD points events that are self-nominated by a coach (this is a time-consuming process and so is offered as an enhanced service to members only).
NOTE RE TENNIS IRELAND LICENSE:
Coaches need to factor in the importance of CPD points within the Tennis Ireland Licensing Scheme, where in order to be registered as a `Licensed Coach` in 2022, a coach will need to achieve 100 points under the CPD 2021 scheme. (i.e. the scheme works on a ‘previous year’ basis). A full explanation of the licensing programme is at: www.tennisireland.ie/coaches/coaches-licensing/
