The latest instalment of PFA TV is brought to you by Leon Mann from one of the world’s most outstanding football centres, St George’s Park.
Leon talks to the PFA's Coaching department who are helping members complete their 'UEFA B' qualification. Includes interviews with Kevin Phillips, Luke Chadwick and PFA Management Committee member Lee Grant.
A brief overview of the UEFA B Licence …
- Focus on functions, phases of play and 8v8 games
- 16-day course. You have 2 years to complete but it can be achieved in 12-18 months
A much more sophisticated course where you're working in units with more strategy and tactics involved. Following a 10-day block (organised between seasons), candidates start logging hours and gaining coaching experience before another six-day period, which includes a 45-minute session that develops something quite fundamental into a phase of play or a team-orientated task. You can manage Divisions 1 and 2 with a UEFA B license but most club demand at least a UEFA A qualification.
