What changes have happened to The FA's grassroots coaching courses?

Since March 2021, FA Education have been responsible for delivering all Coach Education.

We are reducing the range of qualifications offered and re-developing our grassroots courses. 

We've changed our Introduction to First Aid in Football and Safeguarding Children Workshop to become online courses; the Safeguarding Children Workshop is now known as the Safeguarding Children Course.

We've also replaced our FA Level 1 in Coaching Football with the Introduction to Coaching Football. This course is now delivered digitally with a mix of online courses and live webinars with experienced coach developers. 

We're no longer running The FA Level 2 in Coaching Football courses; we have now introduced the UEFA C to replace this qualification. More information can be found on the course page by clicking here.  

More information on all our course can be found on the England Football Learning Hub. 

You can read more in our open letter to grassroots learners written in 2020.
