New Assessors Workshop (Theory & Practical Experience)

Date: Sunday 31st January

Venue: Near Finchampstead (details will be confirmed)

Time: 9:00-16:00

This workshop will cover the new FA Assessors training and the theory behind The FA’s new Assessment scheme.

During the morning we will undertake viewing a local league fixture where we will then “assess” the game and put into practice what you have learned from the theory based session.

Upon completion of the game and a break for lunch we will continue with the next theory based session.

After attending the workshop you will be asked to complete the FA’s assessment paperwork based from the live game, which will need to be completed and returned for review.

Once we have reviewed your assessment you will then be classified as a Trainee Assessor and you will be allocated to a Divisional Secretary who will then provide you with two additional fixtures (with a Qualified Assessor) within our promotion scheme. These additional assessments are required to be completed and returned for review.
