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.

The webinar will be delivered by Luke Chadwick, former professional football player and director of the Football Fun Factory, alongside co-founder of the Football Fun Factory Jonny Martin. They are both UEFA A licensed and Advanced Youth Award qualified coaches and will be sharing their experiences and lessons learnt on their coaching journeys so far. They will also be talking over the ethos and values of the Football Fun Factory and sharing information on how the programmes are run, the coaching checklists that are followed at every session and the rationale behind it. There will be particular emphasis on engaging children, how fun comes before development, and how positive early experiences in the game can develop a lifelong affinity to it. They will also go through a session plan in detail which will be shared with every coach on the call as a takeaway.

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
