Continued learning opportunities

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.

Upcoming Manchester FA CPD:

Helping Players Learn Through the Game
(March 2018 - FREE - tameside stadium, ol7 9hg)

This workshop will demonstrate to coaches how they can utilise appropriate practice design and delivery to help maximise learning for their players. The workshop will include a mixture of both theory and practical where the tutor will share ideas around how to condition practices to challenge players with realistic game scenarios and pictures. In addition to this, it will showcase how coaches can intervene and communicate effectively with players to provide them with the ownership and decisions in solving the problems they are faced with during practice. 

Key outcomes of the workshop include:
1. Understanding how to effectively design practices to maximise learning through game realistic experiences. 
2. Demonstrating different ways of communicating and intervening with players to help them make sense of the scenarios they are faced with in the game.

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
