Continous Professional Development (CPD)

    •  
West Riding County FA offers a comprehensive programme of CPD events. These sessions are offered free of charge (unless stated) to anyone who is currently involved in football in the county. There are no pre-requisites to attend and coaches can attend as many events as they like.

Continuous Professional Development (CPD) is part of being an FA Licensed Coach. It shows coaches are striving to be the best coach they can be, and that they are trying to constantly improve their skills. 

It means committing to a given number of hours of training per year, depending on the level of coaching qualification held.

Our programme has been designed to assist and support clubs within our county to offer quality coaching, raise standards and reward quality.

CPD events are for anyone involved in football who is looking to improve their skills and knowledge of the game. Whether you are an aspiring coach or a seasoned Sunday league manager, these events will help you get more out of your players and ultimately improve everyone's enjoyment of the game.

You can attend events in person or complete CPD hours online. To access the online CPD modules, please click here.

Tuesday 24th October sees Creating and Developing Coaches, a networking and support event for coaches from or working in the BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) community, arrive at the County FA HQ.

Having held networking events at Bradford City, Leeds United, Huddersfield Town, and Sheffield United, this follow up session offers coaches the opportunity to not only network but also observe practical sessions delivered by qualified and experienced coaches.

Leeds Beckett University, in partnership with West Riding County FA, have delivered Creating and Developing Coaches sessions across Yorkshire and West London since April 2016 and have worked with over 200 coaches. Some coaches have capitalized on this initiative and have since undertaken coaching qualification courses, strengthened relationships with local clubs, and built support networks.

The upcoming Creating and Developing Coaches event, held at West Riding County FA, will be the first follow up meeting and will invite back the coaches who have attended events in the Yorkshire region. We look forward to seeing familiar faces and new ones too. The practical element of the evening will be invaluable for current and aspiring coaches.
