Applications for the South East Region’s Level  4 Children’s Award and C Licence mentorship programme are now open.

This is a programme which supports candidates while they sit the courses which begin at the start of April.

Candidates are supplied a mentor from the Scottish FA who provides feedback and pointers on areas to develop.

Chalmers Smith, of Edinburgh United who sat the course last year, said: “I have no doubt that the mentoring programme was an enormous benefit to me throughout the Level 4 course and really helped prepare me for the tough two day assessment and beyond.”

Chris Smith, Scottish FA Level 4 tutor, said: “This is a fantastic programme that helps provide candidates with additional support and tutoring through the course. 

“Having worked as a mentor I feel that it has been of great benefit to the candidates that we have worked with over the past two years with pass rates improving."
