We have been commissioned by the Football Association Education department to undertake a review of approved and development centres providing coach education, safeguarding and first-aid in local communities. The review will embrace both qualitative and quantitative research and will recommend a way forward in relation to the current delivery and the broader delivery of qualifications and training for the County Football Associations and centrally from St George’s Park.
Sport Structures Director, Simon Kirkland, said: “We are delighted that based on our knowledge and expertise in the area of coaching education and training, the FA have invited us to undertake this review.”
Chad Ehlerston, Senior Lead – Education Operations for the FA, said: “We contracted Sport Structures because of their experience and expertise in qualification and education delivery outside of Football. We know we will get a thorough consultation, objective views - recognising the range of stakeholders within Football - and robust recommendations for the future based on sound evidence.”
