Great players need great coaches. But who coaches the coaches?
To create quality coaches, The FA must boast a qualified, specialist and diverse tutor workforce for each level of qualification and offer improved support. This cohort of tutors will educate and shape the next generation of coaches by teaching ideas, values, philosophy and principles.
As part of our annual licenced tutor audit, we now seek applications from coaches who possess the right credentials to join our current workforce of licenced tutors to support the delivery of The FA Coaching Disabled Footballers Course and we welcome applications from all parts of the community as we seek to diversify our tutor workforce.
The benefits of becoming an FA Tutor include:
• Access to an environment of learning and working alongside some of The FA's national coaches
• An excellent support package and CPD programme – including access to The FA's Generic Tutor Training Programme, which will equip you to be a skilled tutor
We are looking for tutors for the following courses in the identified regions:
Additional recruitment needs
In addition to these regional tutor recruitment needs, we have identified as part of The FA coaching strategy and Football’s Inclusion and Anti-Discrimination action plan, the need to increase the number of female and BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) tutors within our coaching tutor workforce.
We are therefore also actively seeking applications from these under-represented groups for the above courses as part of this current recruitment process.
As part of our drive to address this under-representation, successful female and BAME applicants will be asked to identify which County FA or 1st4sport approved centre will support the applicant through the co-tutoring process. The centre must deliver the course the applicant is applying to deliver.
Details of the recruitment process and expectations of an FA Licenced tutor can be found in the Tutor Information Pack and the specific requirements for the Tutor can be found in the Application Pack.
