Stand Alone Courses

In regard to Stand Alone Coaching Courses, when submitting a request through the Expression of Interest Form can you please plan for the course to be delivered from the middle of February onwards.  We have a number of changes within the Football Development Team and therefore (with the exception of the Stand Alone Coaching Courses we have confirmed) we will continue to receive Expression of Interests but they will need to be planned for middle of February 2015 onwards.  Thank you for your assistance with this matter. 

Here at Berks and Bucks FA we can run stand alone courses for your club- if you have a number of people within your club who need to complete a particular course or workshop we can come to your club and hold a course specifically for you.

If your club would like to run a standalone Coaching Course, you must provide the venue, making sure it is of a suitable condition to hold a course. The venue is subject to a Risk Assessment carried out by one of our Football Development Officers. Please see the attached documents for all the details

We are opening up a standalone course programme.  If you club would like to hold another course, not listed above, as a standalone course, please contact Suzanne.Blundy@Berks-BucksFA.com as we may be able to help you.
