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

England DNA Fdn. Phase (5-11) CPD

pete sturgess


We are delighted to announce, that coaches throughout Somerset will have the opportunity to see a workshop delivered by Pete Sturgess, FA Foundation Phase Technical Lead, showcasing the recently released FA Foundation Phase DNA.

The Foundation Phase DNA is an exciting new resource for grassroots coaches, which is jam packed full of ideas, sessions, articles and videos based around the FA 4 Corner Model for long term player development. There are age specific sections which will be a real benefit to all coaches, but especially those entrusted with the footballing development of our youngest players.

The afternoon will consist of a presentation outlining the key messages from the DNA followed by a practical session to demonstrate how this works in coaching scenarios. The afternoon will end with a Q & A session and a chance for coaches to talk to Pete about the Foundation Phase DNA.
