Development opportunities in Shropshire

stay on top of your game

Learning and development is an active, continuous process. It's a journey that never ends. And one that is shaped by experiences and learning opportunities gathered anywhere, anytime.

To support your journey, The FA provides a range of learning opportunities for you to engage with. From events in your region to online resources to in situ mentoring, you can access the development support that will make the biggest impact to you and your role.

For the majority of CPD events that include a practical element we like to invite a group of players from a local Charter Standard Club to participate. If you would like to nominate your squad for a particular event then please email Matt.Jones@TheFA.com.
