LTA Level 2/Instructors have not been trained to deliver private lessons. Qualifications alone do not provide a full picture of a coach’s competence. From an insurance perspective, competence is what counts. It is defined as the combination of qualifications, experience and training combined.
For this reason, it is not possible for the LTA to definitively say what all Level 2 coaches can or cannot do – because every coach is different. If an accident arose, each claim is looked at on a case by case basis. Venues/coaches can reduce the risk that their insurance will be invalidated by satisfying themselves that the coach has a sufficient combination of qualifications experience and training to undertake the activity.
The use of a Level 3 or above coach, where possible, will help to maximise quality and minimise risk in this area, because a Level 3 Qualification specifically covers how to deliver bespoke technical/tactical instruction i.e. private lessons/1 to 1 coaching.
