Continued learning opportunities
Learning and development is an active, continuous process. It's a journey that never ends. And one that is shaped by experiences and learning opportunities gathered anywhere, anytime.
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.
Continuous Professional Development (CPD) is part of being an FA Licensed Coach - it's for those striving to be the best coach they can be, and those trying to constantly improve their skill set.
If you have not done the Safeguarding course previously then you first need to attend the course in person. However once you have attended the course you can either renew it in person or online. It is recommended for those renewing to take the online course. For details and links to the online Safeguarding workshop please click here
