The Level 3 Coaching Course has been redesigned and is now officially the UEFA B Licence Part 2, with The FA Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Football forming UEFA B Part 1. Level 3 leads to a nationally recognised qualification and is designed to further develop a wide range of coaching skills in candidates who have experience with and an ongoing involvement in coaching team football. It is also a prerequisite for undertaking the UEFA A preparatory course.
The revised FA Level 3 curriculum more than doubles the practical course content and seeks to closely link theory with application within the context of the coaches role rather than treating the two as stand alone topics. When this approach is combined with revised technical content, it provide a very well rounded learning package that is highly relevant to coaches working with young players.
The UEFA B training course has been extended to 90 hours plus support and final assessment days. There is also an opportunity for candidates to return to their clubs to gain more hours of practical coaching time and apply the knowledge and experience gained. Prospective candidates must already hold the FA Level 2 (L2CCF) qualification before applying for the UEFA B course.
