What do I need to do to take on a leading role as an FA Lead Playmaker?

For a volunteer to lead activity in an FA participation programme, two further courses listed below need to be completed after the BT Playmaker by England Football course. 



Once they’ve been completed, the individual will be eligible to apply for 'FA Lead Playmaker' roles in FA participation programmes.  


Please note: When working with children you will require an In-date, FA-accepted DBS check and you will be subject to safer recruitment processes.  A DBS check will depend on the eligibility requirements, e.g. individuals must be 16 or above to apply for a DBS check.
