Coach Development Programme Launched for 2018

Submit your application today.


Northumberland FA is delighted to announce the launch of its new Coach Development Programme. 

This new initiative will help in our desire to raise standards and will see 20 local coaches selected for a programme of mentoring, CPD events, networking and more- all completely free of charge. 

Run in conjunction with key local delivery partners, coaches will be given exclusive access to bespoke events and mentored throughout their time on the programme. 

Ian Skinner commented “The aim of the Coach Development Programme is to identify coaches from level 1 to level 3 who are enthusiastic, committed, and looking to progress along their coaching journey to not only better themselves, but also improve the environment and quality of coaching that their players receive, which in turn will aid player development."

To be considered for one of the 20 places you must:

•             Be a qualified football coach at Level 1 or above
•             Be a valid member of the FA Licensed Coaches Club
•             Be actively working with a team
•             Be committed to coaching and personal development (events will be held across and potentially beyond Northumberland)

If you meet all of the above criteria, please complete the application process below, detailing why (in no more than 500 words) you want to be chosen for this programme. 


The closing date for applications is Friday 26 January. No applications will be considered after this date and applications are strictly via the website enrolment only. 

You will need your FAN Number and Password to login. Please contact the NFA on 0191 270 0700 if you require any assistance.
