NEW FAI COURSE FOR THOSE SEEKING A CAREER IN FOOTBALL
FAI AND CORK ETB LAUNCHING NEW FOOTBALL COACH / LEADER DEVELOPMENT COURSE
The FAI in conjunction with the Cork Education and Training Board have developed a new programme aimed at developing community based football coaches and sports leaders. The course, which will be based at Midleton FC’s home ground, Knockgriffin Park, provides participants with the knowledge, qualifications and pathway to ultimately work within football as a coach or administrator or to work elsewhere within the sports and leisure industry.
The course is a balance of practical and theory with learners completing a FETAC Level 5 Sports and Recreation Studies programme, the ITEC Gym Instructor Qualification as well as a host of football related and certified courses up to Youth Cert level.
Along with the qualifications each learner will gain invaluable practical experience working alongside the Football Association of Ireland’s Regional Development Officers on a regular basis.
Interviews for places on the course will be held on Thursday 25th September at Midleton FC with the course starting Monday 6th October.
The course operates on a full time basis, Monday – Friday from 9.30am – 4.00pm, and if you are in receipt of social payments you will receive your payments throughout the course.
Giving his support to the programme, Cork City Manager, John Caulfield said, “I welcome the establishment of the programme here in Cork as it will provide a great opportunity for those who have an interest in becoming a coach or sports leader to gain hands on experience alongside the excellent certified qualifications on offer”.
