Have you ever fancied yourself as a football coach and think you could develop and motivate players? Why not become an FA Qualified coach?

The introductory Level One Award in Coaching Football course is available throughout the country and will prepare you for life as a football coach. This course provides an introduction to the organisation and delivery of safe and enjoyable coaching sessions for players, providing practical drills to develop players’ technical skills such as shooting, turning with the ball and heading.

The Level One is just one of 47 different football qualifications run by FA Learning, open to everyone willing to improve their knowledge and experience of the game.

Who takes the football coaching courses?
Just about anyone who wants to learn more about topics such as coaching football. We teach people from all walks of life, and you don’t even have to have any knowledge of football before signing onto one of the introductory courses. Often people just want to learn more about coaching – for example, many mothers and fathers take the 1st4Sport Level One Award in Coaching Football simply because they want to know how to run safe and effective coaching sessions for their kids’ teams. The only rule is that you have to be at least 16 to take the course.

What courses are on offer?
Courses range from the basic entry level qualifications such as the 1st4Sport Level One Award in Coaching Football to more advanced levels such as the UEFA A and Pro Licences or the FA Youth Award Courses. There are also courses which deal with more specialist areas of football education, such as Goalkeeping Coaching level One of Coaching Disabled Footballers.
