Continued Professional Development
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.
Cheshire FA are currently developing a localised coach development offer which will involve the delivery of local events/workshops, targeted support for Female and Black and Asian coaches as well as a variety of other opportunities to support all coaches.
We are in the process of organising our CPD calendar for the year and more events will be shared the website in the coming weeks, with links to secure a spot on these courses.
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
