Learning and development is an active, continuous process. It's a journey that never ends. And one that is shaped by experiences and learning opportunities gathered anywhere, anytime.

To support your journey, The FA provides a range of learning opportunities for you to engage with. From events in your region to online resources to in situ mentoring, you can access the development support that will make the biggest impact to you and your role.

Introduction to Coaching Live

When: Friday 10th February 2023, 7-9pm
Where: Moulton College West St, Moulton, Northampton NN3 7RR


Join Coach Developers Andy Poole & Quintin Allen as they look to apply the learning from the Introduction to Coaching into a practical base setting. The team will look to run through the different areas of the STEP principle and also answer any queries you may have around coaching a team. Gain a better understanding of the basic principles that will help maximise the development of your players. This event is also a chance to network with other coaches starting out their journey. This workshop is aimed at those coaches who have been on the introduction to coaching within the last year or are due to go on this course in the next few months. However, all individuals are welcome.

Absolutely. The FA runs events all over the country and for all levels. To explore events please visit our national CPD events page here.

If you're an FA Level 1 or 2 learner, continuous professional development hours are optional and so there is no longer a requirement for licensing .

If you're a UEFA qualified coach, however, you are required to complete 15 hours of CPD every three years to maintain your licence, which The FA recommends is best achieved by completing 5 hours per season
