England Football launches Introduction to Coaching Football

Enrolment is now officially open

Enrolment is now officially open for England Football’s new Introduction to Coaching Football course.

The course is perfect for anyone currently coaching a team or looking to get into coaching. You’ll learn how to provide a safe, fun, and enjoyable environment for players of all ages within the grassroots game.

This course is delivered entirely online through a combination of live webinars, e-learning, on-demand resources and community groups where you can chat and share ideas with other coaches who are taking the course.

The course costs £160, and includes ongoing support from England Football for another 11 months after you’ve finished the qualification which includes live webinars, advice and access to our online community, so you have all the help you need to put what you’ve learned into practice.

You must complete the free BT Playmaker by England Football course before you enrol on Introduction to Coaching Football. This will help you learn the brilliant basics of football and will teach you how to support the delivery of fun, safe and inclusive sessions and games. You’ll then build on these skills in the Introduction to Coaching Football course.

Please note, this course is delivered by England Football, not your County FA. If you have any questions related to Introduction to Coaching Football, please visit the Help Centre or email
