Club Placement Programme 2022/23

Lincoln City are one of the professional clubs to offer the opportunity

The FA is committed to developing more opportunities for coaches from Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic and female backgrounds to get essential experience to challenge for coaching and technical roles in football.

As part of a Coach Inclusion and Diversity Plan, The FA has partnered with 19 professional clubs in its Club Placement Programme for the new season. This initiative offers 19 exciting academy placement opportunities for coaches from historically underrepresented backgrounds.

Reporting to the club's head of coaching, successful candidates will take on a part-time volunteer role within a club’s category 1, 2 or 3 academy. And through a carefully structured programme of learning and development opportunities they will gain invaluable experience and exposure within a professional environment.
