UEFA C Licence Ready Check

Get ready for the UEFA C Licence

As we countdown to this next application window, we strongly recommend you take a moment to check you meet all the pre-requisites of the UEFA C Licence course. 

If you do not meet all of the pre-requisites listed above, you may not be able to apply for this course.


Course prerequisites

As places on this course are extremely limited, you must meet the following criteria to enrol:

  • You must be actively coaching a group of players who regularly undertake training and play in organised or competitive fixtures. This is crucial, so you can be assessed on the key elements of the course and be eligible to complete the qualification

  • You must be coaching within the county where the course you’re enrolling on is taking place. Our Coach Developers will be required to travel to visit you during the course, so it’s important you’re within close travelling distance

Course structure

1. Course days

You will attend six face-to-face course days as part of the UEFA C Licence, developing your skills as a coach and building knowledge that you can apply to your role.

The delivery days are split into three modules, each lasting two days:

  • Understanding players and their game
  • Helping players love and learn football through practice
  • Helping players love and learn football through matchday

2. Development visit

One of our Coach Developers will support you in your own context and environment with your players, providing individual support and feedback that you can use to develop beyond the course.


3. One-to-one progress review opportunities

Between course days, you will be supported with virtual peer and individual sessions with our Coach Developers ensuring effective progression and action planning.
