Introduction to Coaching Football
About the programme
The FA is committed to changing that. We're committed to developing more opportunities for coaches from Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic and female backgrounds to get essential experience to challenge for coaching and technical roles in football.
As part of our Coach Inclusion and Diversity Plan, we've partnered with 19 professional clubs in our Club Placement Programme for the new season. This initiative offers 19 exciting academy placement opportunities for coaches from historically underrepresented backgrounds.
Reporting to the club's head of coaching, successful candidates will take on a part-time volunteer role within a club’s category 1, 2 or 3 academy. And through a carefully structured programme of learning and development opportunities they will gain invaluable experience and exposure within a professional environment.
