Guide to CPD

CPD / In-Service

Learning and development is an active, continuous process.

It's a journey that never ends...

...and one that is shaped by experiences and learning opportunities gathered anywhere, anytime.

To support your journey, The FA provides a range of learning opportunities for you to engage with. From events in your region to online resources to in-situ mentoring, you can access the development support that will make the biggest impact to you and your role.

A new concept we are trying for the 2017-18 season to assist coaches in behaviour management as a whole, incorporating parents, players and coaches as a whole and how we can improve behaviour within the game.

Frequently asked questions about CPD events and additional learning.

If you're an FA Level 1 or 2 learner, continuous professional development hours are optional and so there is no longer a requirement for licensing .

If you're a UEFA qualified coach, however, you are required to complete 15 hours of CPD every three years to maintain your licence, which The FA recommends is best achieved by completing 5 hours per season.

Absolutely. The FA runs events all over the country and for all levels. To explore events please visit the national CPD events page.
