In summer 2021 a new Introduction to Coaching Football course is being launched to replace the FA Level 1 in Coaching Football qualification.
This will be an online course designed to provide learners with an introduction to coaching the game. The course will be complemented by practical and face to face learning experiences delivered locally as part of our ongoing coach development offer.
Are you an FA Playmaker?
Before enrolling on the new Introduction to Coaching Football qualification, you need to complete the FA Playmaker course, supported by BT. This is a free online entry-level course and you don’t need any previous football experience or qualifications before signing up. All you need is an FA account and a laptop, tablet or mobile device and you’re good to go. The course can be completed in your own time and at your own pace. Sign up to FA Playmaker today and complete the course, then you’ll be ready to go when the new Introduction to Coaching Football course launches.
