The course for an FA level 1 has now changed and learners will need to complete 5/6 online modules before the course starts, participants also need to be currently coaching within a community setting and there isn't a final assessment.

Learners will gain 3 accredited qualifications in Football Coaching, First Aid and Safeguarding - all incredibly beneficial training for future employment/further study.
