Coach Education Pathway
A modern coaching workforce requires a modern education pathway; one that is inclusive, flexible, easy to navigate, and fully supportive of all learners.
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.
