Development And Courses

Course Education Update

The FA have recently announced the decision that all coach education courses (except refereeing) will be moving across to an online learning platform and administered by The FA centrally with effect from March 2021.

Coach Development Offer

Due to The FA’s recent changes to the course programme, Birmingham County FA will soon be launching our new Coach Development Offer. This will include both face to face and virtual workshops to support our football volunteer workforce. The sessions will help people develop their skills and will allow attendees to better understand the next steps in their own coaching journey.
