The role of the PFA Coaching Department is to prepare its members for a secondary career within the professional game possibly within coaching or management.  

In fact over 70% of PFA members claim a desire to stay within football when their playing days are over and the Coaching Department therefore has a big role to play in their development.

The Department works hard to ensure that there is a fair geographical spread of coaching courses throughout the country. Furthermore we try to run them at times which allow access to all members whether they are still playing or not.

The FA/UEFA qualifications (Level 2 and UEFA B) are delivered at both club sites and regional venues across the country. These courses are all subsidised for PFA members.

The PFA’s Coaching Department is staffed by former players who understand the needs of the professional game and the courses are exclusive to PFA members. They are run at a time and location to suit a busy playing/training schedule and the support on offer is tailored to the members’ needs.

Our advice is to search out these qualifications while you are still playing not when your career is over or coming to an end.

Our courses are run by the professionals for the professionals so make the most of the service available!
