The FA Level 2 Certificate In Coaching Football

Building on the initial skills learnt in the Level 1 Award in Coaching Football, this course provides a more in depth understanding of coaching.  The course introduces new themes such as the appreciation of different coaching styles, fitness planning and player development, preparing for accidents and emergencies and understanding nutritional needs.

Who is it for?

The certificate is aimed to support coaches with developing their knowledge of how to effectively plan, conduct and evaluate football coaching sessions.  It will introduce coaches to an appreciation of the principles of the game, both attacking and defending, and how to utilise this knowledge for invasion games.

Course content

The course will introduce a number of key aspects related to the role of a football coach in working with youth players.  These are delivered via home based study tasks and tutor delivered workshops.

In addition coaches will have the opportunity to undertake two observed practical coaching sessions with the tutor and receive feedback based on selected criteria.  This will form the basis of an opportunity to deliver 12 hours of coaching in the coaches workplace to apply the experience gained from the course.

Prior to certification, candidates are required to:

  • Be at least 16 years of age
