In August 2016, 'The FA' announced a revised Level 1 and 2 in Coaching football courses. These have been designed to modernise the first steps of the FA’s coaching pathway to help address the ever evolving modern game. The aim of these changes is to provide a clear introduction aimed at people who want to coach as a volunteer at community club level or aspire to make football coaching as a career. The courses are structured to allow coaches to enjoy a more flexible and personal learning experience.
Both qualifications have been modernised to help ensure there is a consistency in how coaching courses are delivered at both the grassroots and elite end of the game, linking coaching modules to the FA’s England DNA philosophy.

How do the Youth Awards Modules now fit into the Coaching Pathway?
Prior to August 2016 the Youth Award Modules were delivered as stand-alone courses in their own right. Now they are incorporated into the core FA Coach Education Pathway as they are seen as essential for all coaches to be educated on.
