Coach education

If you are interested in becoming a football coach, or are an existing coach wishing to further your coach education knowledge, then the Scottish FA has a course for you.

We currently offer coach education opportunities to those who are aged 16 and above in the Children's, Youth and Adult pathways. Whether you are a novice coach or have been working with a club for years, we can help you move up the coach education ladder at your own pace. There are various courses throughout the year, as well as in-house courses within Secondary Schools and Further Education establishments on request.
