Ever fancied yourself as a football coach and think you could develop, motivate and improve players? How about becoming a Referee? You may have also considered supporting a club or league by becoming their Welfare, Safeguarding or First Aid Officer?

Here at the Berks & Bucks Football Association we would like to offer you a course to develop any role in grassroots football and to gain an officially recognised FA Qualification. Berks & Bucks FA provides a series of training courses and development opportunities for Coaches from the FA Level 1 Award in Coaching Football and the widely acclaimed ‘Age Appropriate’ FA Youth Modules, through to working in partnership with the FA in providing guidance to those coaches that wish to progress to the advanced UEFA Licenses.

Berks & Bucks FA courses also cater for vitally important development needs of Referee's, Welfare Officers, Safeguarding Children Officers, Emergency First Aiders and Football Futures Volunteers to name but a few.

Standalone Courses
Here at Berks and Bucks FA we can run Standalone 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. Please contact for more details.

N.B. If your club would like to run a Standalone 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

Standalone CPD Events
We can run Stand Alone CPD events for your club - if you have a number of people within your club who need to attend a workshop to renew their FALCC hours, we can come to your club and hold an event specifically for you. Please find our Standalone CPD guide below for more information.

To run a Standalone CPD event you need to submit the expression form found on the Standalone CPD guide below 8 weeks before the event. Please be aware that submitting the form does not guarantee the CPD event will go ahead, that will be at the discretion of the Berks & Bucks Development team.

David Goodwin, Wokingham & Emmbrook ran a CPD event recently:
"We welcomed Danny Fenner and Lawrence Lok from the BBFA to Wokingham and Emmbrook FC for an in-house CPD session on Wednesday 16th March 2016.

After 30 mins of classroom-based discussion around the topic of attacking play, 14 of our under 11 age-group arrived and the focus switched to the floodlit area outside the clubhouse. The players were immediately thrust into arrival activities linked to the session theme and to warm up in the low temperatures. Over the next hour the group played a number of conditioned games to work on the topic, including one with the goals moved onto the edge of the penalty areas...but turned around! After some initial head-scratching the players quickly solved the problem and looked to move the ball wide quickly to get around the back. Throughout this session Danny, the lead coach, could be heard via a mic and Lawrence added further detail for the observing coaches.

A half hour debrief and Q&A followed, and sixteen Wokingham and Emmbrook coaches went away engaged and with new ideas, plus two hours of CPD towards their Licenced Coaches Club renewal. I would like to thank Danny and Lawrence for their time, and Ashley's support in organising, and following great feedback from attendees look forward to welcoming them back to Wokingham & Emmbrook in the future."
