As part of the Strategy we aim to provide opportunities for more female coaches to become qualified in Wales as well as support those who are already coaching. We recognise the issues and barriers which sometimes makes it hard for coaches to access courses, therefore we offer flexible approaches which allow females and those coaches who work in the female game opportunities to access our FAW Football Leaders Award and FAW C Certificate course.
The FAW Football Leaders course is for those coaches who are starting their journey on the coach education ladder. It is a level one 16 hour course normally ran across two Saturdays during the season. We currently run a free female only Football Leaders Award in each of the 6 areas of Wales. If you would like more information on the course in your area please contact your local Inclusion Football Development Officer, whose details can be found by clicking here Clicking Here
Since 2012 we have been running a Female Game FAW C Certificate.
"The Coach Education Course and Coach Mentoring support has really helped me to improve as a coach and understand key aspects of the Game - Female Course Candidate"
The course is compiled of the same content as all other FAW C Certificate courses, however it is ran across 9 weekday evenings and 3 Saturdays throughout the season to allow coaches and players, male or female, to access the course during the season and still be available at club games on a Sunday. The Female Game FAW C Certificate course aims to educate coaches how to teach players techniques and skills through problem solving games and practices. Both practical coaching and theory modules are covered along with distance learning and on course practical delivery from candidates.
The development of the female game continues to grow and enhance season on season, with the increased contact time and opportunities for players come increased opportunities for coaches at all levels of the game in Wales.
