The Scottish FA are set to welcome coaches to the latest intake of the UEFA C Licence this month.

Thousands of coaches across the nation and beyond have been hard at work over the past few months thanks to new online delivery methods to continue coach education during lockdown.

This latest opportunity to enter the UEFA pathway through the Scottish FA, delivered using a unique blended-learning approach, is available to book now. Only coaches who are eligible for a spot on the course through their progress on the Scottish FA Coaching Pathway can apply.

UEFA C Licence graduates will be able to provide a positive developmental experience that enhances the enjoyment, knowledge and skill for players - comprised of practical and theoretical work. The UEFA C Licence is a crucial step for coaches aspiring to enter the UEFA B Licence, although the Scottish FA will also honour their own Scottish FA C Licence until the end of 2023.

Head of Coach Education and Development Greig Paterson: “We are absolutely delighted to offer this course to our coaching workforce. We paused delivery of our Scottish FA C Licence at the turn of the year in the knowledge that UEFA were releasing criteria for the UEFA C Licence and we wanted to be absolutely certain that any C Licence course that we subsequently offered in 2020 met this criteria.

“Our coach education staff have worked exceptionally hard to ensure that our C Licence course not only meets that minimum criteria but will utilise the very best delivery methods, whilst also ensuring that the C Licence acts as a better bridging course between our recently redeveloped Level 1 courses and the UEFA B Licence.

“Similarly, the course may represent the peak of the pathway for many working in the grassroots game and it’s great that they can now get a UEFA-endorsed qualification that we truly believe will stand them in excellent stead working with their players.”
