Who is it for?: Module 3 is designed to support the development of coaches who currently work (or who have a realistic opportunity of working on consistent basis) with a group of youth players within the performance or elite levels of the game.
Course content:

Workshops will consider:

  • Practice and multiple outcomes
  • "What the players say"
  • Coaching styles and intervention strategies
  • Planning and design
  • "What the coaches say"
Pre-course task: Candidates will receive a pre-course reading pack three weeks prior to the course, which they are required to read in advance. Candidates should arrive having identified six areas of individual, unit or team developmental needs, plus up to six identified areas for personal development as a coach.
Post-course task: Certificates of attendance will be issues following submission of completed log book. This does not commit candidates to undergo assessment for The FA Youth Award assessment.
Course assessment:

There is an option to undertake an assessment at the conclusion of this module to examine the understanding and application of all the key elements included within modules 1-3 of The FA Youth Award. Opportunities will be made available to all eligible candidates throughout the year.

Candidates will be required to return log books to FA Learning at least 4 weeks prior to the date of final assessment. Candidates will be required to bring players to the practical assessment at a regional venue.

Dress code: Standard dress code on the course is casual. For practically based courses, please bring sufficient outdoor kit/clothing for the duration of the course. The venue ask that candidates refrain from wearing muddy footwear inside the building.

Medical information/physical requirements: If you have any medical conditions which limit/hinder your involvement or participation in coaching activities, you are obliged to declare any relevant, current or previous injuries/illnesses. If you are diagnosed as an asthmatic, diabetic or epileptic, or have any allergies that the course staff needs to be aware of, you must advise us accordingly. Please note, a declaration of injury or illness does not automatically preclude you from any course.

You should further be aware that if you are on a regular course of medication for any condition, you must have sufficient medication to cover you throughout the course. Although first aid cover is provided (where applicable) during courses, no doctor is available to replenish regular medication, nor is there any facility to deliver medical treatment for chronic (longstanding) medical conditions.

Please provide any relevant information regarding the above Medical Information during the application process.

If your application to enrol is successful candidates will be required to complete a Medical Form prior to commencing the course.

Practical Information: Please note that if a student has a disability that may prevent them participating actively in the practical sessions, then this should be made known to the course organiser at the point of registration. The course organiser will then take any necessary steps to cater for the students requirements which may include bringing in footballers to ensure there are sufficient numbers of players.
Equality: FA Learning will ensure that it treats people fairly and with respect and that it will provide access and opportunities for all members of the community to take part in, and enjoy, its activities in an atmosphere free from harassment, bullying, discrimination or abuse. FA Learning will seek to provide a service which is appropriate to the needs of an individual and to make reasonable adjustments or provide support, where appropriate, to cater for those needs.
