However, named coaches in Charter Standard Clubs are required to keep their Safeguarding Children in date and completion of this module will update the learners’ qualification for a further three years.

Course aims and objectives:
Learners will gain an insight into the game in England, how it’s played and how they can coach to better support the development of future players. The qualification is designed to prepare learners to coach football within the grassroots game.
Through the completion of the learning programme for this qualification, learners will be introduced to the practical and theoretical aspects of planning, delivering and reviewing individual football coaching sessions. The foundation level of knowledge and skills developed through this qualification will enable learners to create safe, fun and engaging coaching sessions through building, developing and extending a series of linked practices.
Learners will be introduced to basic game formats, key rules, and the England DNA coaching fundamentals and playing principles through completion of four mandatory components; How We Coach, How We Play, The Future Player and How We Support.

Throughout the course learners will be introduced to:
• The England DNA – How We Coach, How We Play, How We Support and The Future Player.
• The FA 4 Corner Player Development Model which will help them gain a better understanding of the long-term
development of their players as a whole person.
• The FA Plan, Do, Review Model, helping them construct appropriate practices and sessions for their players
• A series of practical coaching ideas, giving them the ability to recognise the various ingredients that make up
safe, fun and engaging practices to help their players develop

The course of learning is made up of eight guided learning; face-to-face workshops covering a range of topics linked to the England DNA, as well as some directed learning opportunities via three e-learning modules hosted on The FA Learner Management System (LMS). The e-learning modules cover core topics including the role of the coach, long-term player development and The FA Plan, Do, Review model.
