FA Level 2 Certificate in Coaching

22 May 2013

Football (QCF)

Building on the initial skills learnt in the Level 1 Award in Coaching Football this course provides a deeper understanding of coaching. 
It introduces new themes such as looking at different coaching styles, preparing for accidents and emergencies and understanding players' nutritional needs. 
The course offers an opportunity for potential football coaches to be supported in developing the knowledge of how to effectively plan, conduct and evaluate football coaching sessions.
It will also introduce the candidates to an appreciation of the principles of the game, both attacking and defending, and how to utilise this knowledge for invasion games.

This course is open to anyone over the age of 16 wishing to further develop their coaching skills through a recognised FA coaching qualification. Typically, if you are a coach who has qualified at FA Level 1 or are an experienced player who is interested in branching out from simply competing to put something back into the sport then this course will be ideal for you. The FA Level 2 qualification is also viewed commonly as the minimum requirement for budding coaches with aspirations to make coaching their profession. Those coaches wishing to progress to FA Level 3 (UEFA B) and beyond must have attained the Level 2 qualification.

Minimum 75 hours contact time


· Candidates must be over 16

This will form the basis of an opportunity to deliver 12 hours of coaching in the candidate's work place to apply the experience gained from the course of training.

Candidates will be encouraged to participate practically to maximise their opportunities for learning (however inability to participate will not prevent successful completion of the award).
