Coaching in Education

FA Skills Programme

The FA Skills programme works in over 2500 primary schools each year, providing lessons for the children against the requirements of the PE National Curriculum and supports teachers’ professional learning.

As well as helping to develop the technique, ball skills and confidence of children in primary schools, The FA Skills coaches aim to pass on invaluable lesson ideas and guidance on the delivery of football to the pupils’ teachers.
