Frequently asked questions about The FA Level 1 in Coaching Football

Click here to receive a reminder.

We would recommend that you ensure you can attend all dates listed on the course specification before booking onto it. Failure to attend all dates and times specified will result in non-qualification and you will need to book and pay (in full) to attend the course again in order to become fully certificated.

The FA Youth Award Modules previously received a high level of positive feedback from learners, yet take-up rates were usually lower than the core coaching qualifications.

Therefore, in order to raise the standards of coaching, the principles of The FA Youth Award Modules have been incorporated into the core coaching qualifications to ensure all coaches have access to these principles and understand how to apply them to the environment in which they coach.

If you are completely new to coaching you will need to complete The FA Level 1 in Coaching Football first.

If you already hold an existing FA Level 1 you can go to the new FA Level 2 in Coaching Football qualification taking into consideration the action plan you received from your course tutor.
