What are the Safeguarding requirements for Coach Accreditation?
A coach needs to have completed one of the below courses within the last 3 years to meet the Safeguarding requirements to apply for or renew Coach Accreditation:
- LTA Safeguarding & Protection in Tennis (SPT) course
- Sports Coach UK Safeguarding & Protecting Children course (must include the anti-radicalisation module which was introduced in early 2017)
- Online Safeguarding in Tennis Together (Coaches) course*
*Please note, you are only eligible to take the online course if the last safeguarding course you completed was face-to-face training i.e. you must alternate between face-to-face and online training and cannot use the online course to satisfy your pre-requisites twice in succession. You can access the online course once your face-to-face training is more than 12 months old, but less than 3 years old.
