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.
Future opportunities will be advertised here and @CCFACoaches

The evening will involve a practical session with a group of grassroots U10 and U13 players allowing the coaches to observe the sessions being delivered by the FA Regional Coach Development Officer.
Questions this workshop will aim to answer:
1) What games and practices can I provide that give players the joy of scoring and stopping goals?
2) How can I help players to learn and understand more about the game?
3) How might I use football as a vehicle for developing social skills?
What can coaches expect to take away?
1) Strategies to understand why our players play.
2) Example games that could be used to help players love football.
3) Reflected on their coaching behaviours and the impact on player motivation.
Are there any tasks to complete ahead of the event?
1) Watch the introductory video for the workshop, which will be sent by email.
2) Find out the top 3 reasons why your players play and love football.
Overview of the event
We hope this workshop has supported you to reflect on the reasons your players love playing football, the impact your behaviours as a coach can have on their enjoyment and provided some practical ideas for you to try out in training.
If you have two teams, a goal at both ends of the pitch and a way to win the game or practice you’re well on the way to helping players fall in love and stay in love with football.

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
