Non-LTA coaching qualifications


Non LTA coaching.jpg

We welcome coaches with external qualifications or those from abroad who’ve completed similar levels of training. If you have an external qualification and would like to either join the qualification pathway or become a member of LTA Coach Accreditation (our professional coach membership scheme), we’ve put together some information on how you can make that happen.  

Please read the bullet points below for important information: 

  • Equivalency: We don’t award any form of equivalency to non-LTA qualifications - your submission will be reviewed based upon one of the two entry points outlined in step one below.  
  • British Padel/Tennis Coaches Association (BPCA/BTCA): We’re working with the BPCA/BTCA to map their course and tutor standards, content and curriculum. However, please note we’re currently unable to accept BPCA/BTCA qualifications for entry into LTA Coach Accreditation and the LTA qualification pathway. 
  • USPTA: We currently do not recognise USPTA qualifications for entry into LTA Coach Accreditation and the LTA qualification pathway.

Please note that that due to the number of applications we receive and the complexity of each review we will respond to each application within 4-6 weeks.
