Become an FA Emergency First Aid in football Tutor
ApplyING FOR A LICENCE
The process will vary depending on the type of licence you apply for. The first stage for all licences is the application form. This gives applicants the opportunity to evidence their skills and experiences against the requirements of the licence they’re applying for.
Applicants are shortlisted for the second stage. For the coach education licence application that involves a face-to-face interview and other assessment tasks.
While for other licence types, the next stage will often be a phone conversation and an opportunity to observe a course and co-tutor a course to assess suitability.
Throughout the application process everything is double scored and standardised to ensure fairness and objectivity. Successful applicants are not fully licensed until they are tutoring independently.
The application process ensures a fair and transparent approach to tutor licencing across every area of education. However, as all open applications are created by regional demand, there are only a limited number of licences available.
The application process, therefore, determines the most appropriate selection, in what is a highly competitive recruitment process. As a result, the focus is on evidence provided by individuals through their application forms and it’s application to the role of an FA affiliate tutor.
If you're successful in securing an FA Affiliate Tutor licence you'll be supported by a tutor developer or county coach developer (CCD).
They'll be your main point of contact and will work with you to develop your tutoring skills and will always support your on-going professional development. Tutor developers and CCDs will also complete development visits for each tutor allocated to them and will help support initial training with newly recruited tutors.
If you attend an interview or selection event for a licence, you'll be able to request personalised feedback and will be informed of how and when to do this at the appropriate time.
