Coaching CoursesWednesday 15th September 2010 | Bob Waygood
In a move set to revolutionise coach education in Wales, the FAW has introduced a new way for coaches to access relevant training.
Under the current system, all coaches undergo a standard 'C' Certificate and 'B' Licence no matter who they teach. The new system, due to launch in July, offers separate pathways for both youth and senior coaches with targeting course material.
Each course consists of a 'C' Certificate, 'B' Licence and 'A' Licence that has been specifically designed to help coaches within a particular field. The Youth Pathway will target coaches working with players age 5-21 while the Senior Pathway has been designed for coaches teaching senior players.
Welsh Football Trust Technical Director Osian Roberts said: "In education teaching is specific to age, and coaching should be no different to this. I am extremely pleased that we are now in a position to support coaches by offering Coach Education Courses which are specific to the age range that they're working with, from the youngest player to the senior player."
Courses are held across the country. To find out more please see the attached FAQ's or contact firstname.lastname@example.org
