As previously said, Level 1 National Instructor Course is competency based.  One of the components of all competency based educational programmes is the need for the candidate to complete a series of workbooks. The workbooks below include a series of activities that will be covered during both the on- and off-court sessions of the course.


As stated in the Introduction, the syllabi of the TSA Level 2 Advanced Instructor and TSA Level 3 Professional Coach courses is based on the ITF Coaching Advanced Players Course (formerly known as ITF Level 2). Throughout the two six (6) and five (5) ten-day courses, candidates are continually assessed by the tutor. Advanced Instructors undergo a written and playing ability test at the completion of the six days.
To undertake the Professional Course, a candidate must have successfully completed TSA Level 2 Advanced Instructor course.
TSA Level 2 Advanced Instructor and TSA Level 3 Professional Coach courses are competency based.  This implies that the organisation and delivery of coach training and educational programmes is based around competencies which are established for the professional area of tennis coaching and the different standard occupations of the tennis coach (coach of beginner, intermediate, advanced and professional players).
One of the components of all competency based educational programmes is the need for the candidates to complete a series of workbooks. It is recommended that candidates bring these workbooks to all on- and off-court sessions and it should serve as a useful resource in completing their course assessment tasks and during their coaching career.  It is up to the course organisers to decide to what extent these workbooks should be considered a substantial part of the course. The modular option is another schedule that can be used for improving candidates’ retention and success rate. This will help candidates to practice the contents learned in between course modules, maximizing the benefit of the overall learning process. Attached are the mock exams to give the candidates an idea of the type of questions asked during the exam at the end of the course.
