Continued learning opportunities
Learning and development is an active, continuous process. It's a journey that never ends. And one that is shaped by experiences and learning opportunities gathered anywhere, anytime.
To support your journey, The FA provides a range of learning opportunities for you to engage with. From events in your region to online resources to in situ mentoring, you can access the development support that will make the biggest impact to you and your role.
The Berks & Bucks FA Coach Development Programme returned in April 2021 with a webinar on "Mastering the Basics".
series of workshops we concentrate on the Foundation Phase (FP). We will tackle
specific topics and themes designed around the needs of players aged 5-11 and
their coaches but can be used for players of all ages
In the next installment, The FA Regional Coach Development Team deliver a webinar on "Beginning to Combine with Teammates"
Games and Play- Tuesday 1st June 2021- 7:30pm-8:30pm- Online Webinar
Building on workshops 1 and 2, we will look at how teamwork can be used to bring further benefits to your players. To help do this, you develop an understanding of the psychology behind a player’s decision making- one player may be unwilling to share the ball whereas others will recognise the benefits of combining to maximise situations.
This workshop will provide you with practices and games to help your players better understand when and how to share the ball.
The webinar is free to attend and you can book your place by clicking the below link:

Absolutely. The FA runs events all over the country and for all levels. To explore events please visit our national CPD events page here.
If you're an FA Level 1 or 2 learner, continuous professional development hours are optional and so there is no longer a requirement for licensing .
If you're a UEFA qualified coach, however, you are required to complete 15 hours of CPD every three years to maintain your licence, which The FA recommends is best achieved by completing 5 hours per season
