FA CPD Events

Coach CPD

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.

Cumberland FA are currently developing a localised coach development offer which will involve the delivery of local events/workshops.

This practical based workshop will get you to consider 3 aspects of your sessions:

Know your players – To be able to motivate them appropriately
Know the game – To be able to get the balance right between repetition and realism

Answers to your frequently asked questions

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
