The Technical Department of the Football Association of Wales has developed a Coach Education programme in line with UEFA recommendations to meet the needs of coaches working at all levels.
In 2013 UEFA confirmed that the Programme in Wales had secured and maintained accreditation to the UEFA Coaching Convention.

This course has been brilliant. There are great discussions within the group and all the content is modern and relevant. It's great to have such open staff and fellow delegates who have real world experience. I think we're all learning together.
Our FAW/ UEFA Courses consist of the following:
FAW/ UEFA B Licence
FAW/ UEFA A Licence
FAW/ UEFA Pro Licence
At present the Coach Education Programme in Wales runs
5 x UEFA B Licence Courses (Level 3) every year
1 x UEFA A Licence Senior Course (Level 4) every year
1 x UEFA Pro Licence Course (Level 5) every 2 years
The Welsh Coaching pathway attracts a wide range of coaches from the grassroots game through to our domestic league as well as the full time professional game.
