Coaching Licence Points

In order to ensure CPD (Continuing Professional Development) for all the coaching staff at The Elms, coaches must gain 40 points per year (12 months rolling).

The table below explains the focal points. Points can be gained for the following:-

Focal Points Licence Points
One whole term’s sessions fully attended
Throughout a whole term (12-13 weeks) you have NOT missed one day’s coaching
Level 2 & above achieved in the year
Have you become newly qualified to Level 2 or above in any particular sport? The certificate must be added to your Elms in-house file before the points are submitted
New business
Any brand new schools The Elms are introduced to is classed as new business. This includes extra curricula activities gained at your current school as well as PPA hours
Attendance at ‘In-House’ training
There are 20 dates in the calender year where ‘in-house’ training takes place. These are 2 hour courses. Failure to arrive on time will mean you will have to re-book
Attendance at Coaches/Senior Managers Meetings
Throughout the year there will be meetings organised by Management. You will be advised of these meetings in advance
Completed PPA test
You can arrange to do an Elms PPA test at any time through your Senior Manager. The test will be 30 minutes duration and has to be completed at The Elms Head Office.

65% = 1 licence point
75% = 2 licence points
85% = 3 licence points

If unsuccessful or you wish to improve on your score, you can arrange to take the test again at any time
1, 2 or 3
New School figures 20+ 2
Positive feedback from Schools/Parents
This could be in the form of an email sent into the Office by a Senior staff at a school as well as a phone call. Good feedback from parents also means proof is required – so a parent telling YOU how much Jimmy is enjoying tennis does not count! Ask the parent to put their comments in writing
Shadowing Senior Coaches (5 hours)
Shadowing a Senior Manager at any PPA/extra curricula activity is essential. Shadowing will mean taking sessions as well as observing
Late for session -2
