Continuing Professional Development

Learning and development is an active, continuous process. It's a journey that never ends. And one which 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.

CPD (Continuing Professional Development) events and opportunities for online learning become available on an ongoing basis so, to see if there are any coming-up which you can access, please click here to view local events, or visit www.thefa.com for national dates and venues.


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
