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.


Goalkeeping CPD Level 1 -Level 2 

28th March 2020 10:00 – 13:00 

Priory City of Lincoln Academy, Skellingthorpe Road, Lincoln, Lincolnshire, LN6 0EP.
This workshop will be a mixture of classroom based theory and practical regarding the role of the modern goalkeeper. The goalkeeper of today is described as “an outfield player that can use their hands” and this event will analyse the goalkeeper to be able to support the player on the ball, start the attack with a variety of distribution techniques and retain possession when necessary, as well as protecting the goal. Practices will be showcased that include the goalkeeper ‘as a PART OF the team and not APART FROM the team’.



CPD Level 2 – Level 3

Venue: Cherry Willingham Community School, Croft Lane, Lincoln, LN3 4JP.

Date: 11th May 2020, 18:30 -21:30

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

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
