I hold the Advanced Youth Award and my FAN previously showed me as a Level 4 coach, but now shows as a Level 3, why is this?

In 2020 the decision was made to retire The FA Licensed Coaches’ Club (you can read more about the reasons why here) and with this a review of what qualifications would show for coaches as the highest qualification on our new site My Account. The decision was made to show our core coaching pathway rather than specialist coaching qualifications.  


Due to this, your My Account profile will show your profile as a Level 3 qualified coach and your Advanced Youth Award will still show in your Learning Experience under Coaching – Other. Your Advanced Youth Award remains a valid qualification and you will still be able to work in the same situations as you always have. It remains a requirement for those working in certain roles within the EPPP male academy system.
