PTR recruited Anne Pankhurst as our educational consultant 18 months ago, to assist us in revising our Coach Education Pathway. The new programme, which began in March this year in the USA, has been well received. Anne has done an impressive job in writing the syllabus, conducting workshops and training tutors. The recently received NCACE accreditation at Level 5 for the Master of Tennis Performance programme is one example of her work. Anne’s focus will shift to duplicate her US efforts in the UK, other parts of Europe as well as Asia.
As you will see on the website at http://www.ptrtennis.org/ptruk/workshops
, in mid-November this year, we will start conducting the first of the new courses in the UK. If you choose to add to your current knowledge as well PTR certification (Adult Development), Anne will be conducting Junior Development (10 and under) and Performance courses. Andy will be conducting Adult Development courses for new members who wish to choose that pathway. We are working to have our new website features operational by the end of August, so you will be able to sign up for one of the new workshops online.
One of the requests from the survey we sent you recently was that we run courses in all parts of the UK. So our plan is to train a workforce to enable us to do that. This will allow us to provide more workshops near you. If you are interested at hosting one at your club, please contact Anne: firstname.lastname@example.org
In conclusion, we appreciate your patience during our transition, and we always welcome your comments and suggestions. We look forward to providing you with unparalleled service, so you can continue to... Make a World of Difference.
