The Welsh Football Trust provide over 200 Foundation (Level 1) coach education awards for clubs, coaches and volunteers to access across Wales on an annual basis, with over 5,000 opportunities to attend our ever growing and popular awards.
As the demand continues to grow within our sport and numbers continue to increase within our player development and coach education pathway, we are increasingly aware of the need for awards to be more flexible and suited to the needs and demands of the game's thousands of dedicated volunteers and coaches.
In January 2016, www.fawcourses.com was launched to provide further flexibility and opportunities for candidates to attend our awards via our new online coach education platform: with this we expect the demand for additional courses to continue to grow and we have acted by including further Saturday, mid-week and daytime awards to go with our Sunday dates on the recent coach education calendar.
To ensure further flexibility within our delivery, specifically around the venue and location of the awards we are now openly providing clubs and organisations with the opportunity to deliver internal coach education awards within your own designated facility, the awards we are able to provide are:
- FAW Football Leaders Award,
- FAW Safeguarding Award,
- FAW First Aid in Football Awareness,
- FAW Goalkeepers Award,
- FAW Coaching Footballers with a Disability,
- And our FAW Introduction to Futsal Award.
The Welsh Football Trust, Level One Coach education team will aim to be flexible and able to arrange delivery of an award of your choice within a facility (as-long as deemed suitable by ourselves) of your choice. (of which must be funded and booked via the club/organisation wishing to deliver the internal award)
For FAW First Aid Awards and FAW Safeguarding Awards, we would require a minimum of 10 and can take a maximum of 16 candidates per award. For FAW Football Leaders Award, FAW Introduction to Futsal, FAW Goalkeepers and FAW Coaching Footballers with a Disability Awards, we would require between 12 and 16 candidates per tutor (able to accommodate up to 48 maximum)
The First Aid/Safeguarding and FAW Introduction to Futsal awards take 3-hours to deliver and historically will take place on a weekday, whilst our FAW Football Leaders Award, FAW Goalkeepers and FAW Coaching Footballers with a Disability awards are 8-hour practical days.
Please note following successful registration and confirmation of your award, candidates/course co-ordinator will be required to register candidates appropriately utilising our www.fawcourses.com registration system
