OUR GOAL

Unite the Game and Inspire the Nation through Winning England Teams.

This jointly funded programme provides a unique and exciting opportunity to join The FA and will be integral to the organisation achieving its goals.

BACKGROUND

One of The FA's strategic objectives is to have in place 'a world-leading education programme for a diverse football workforce'. Both The FA and PFA have put coaching and the development of quality coaches, front and centre of their agenda and are taking positive action to widen the diversity of the coaching talent pool. It's a major commitment and investment from both organisations to improve the diversity of coaches within our National teams, creating a better reflection of ethnicity and gender in key positions and providing new pathways for aspiring coaches and players.

People of Black, Asian, Mixed or other ethnic backgrounds and female coaches (of any ethnic origin) continue to be significantly under-represented at the top levels of the men's and women's game. One of the key areas of the PFA's focus over the last decade has been challenging the recruitment procedures in the professional game, aiming to widen the representation and visibility of diverse talent across all areas of football.

The FA has looked inwardly at this under-representation and is committed to developing greater equality of opportunities that includes ensuring more under-represented coaches are obtaining relevant qualifications and gaining essential experience to challenge for elite and national coaching roles in football, demonstrating a commitment to address the challenge within The FA and the elite level of the game.
