CPD stands for Continuous Professional Development and refers to a practical or online learning opportunity, such as a regional workshop, an FA conference, online courses, and webinars. These are delivered outside of any formal qualification pathway. 

Coaching, as both a vocation and a profession, never stands still. It’s always evolving and always seeking out the newest innovations, emerging trends and latest best practice. This is where CPD comes in. These events are not only crucial in exposing you as a coach to up-to-date thinking and methods, but they’ll also give you the skills needed to create and sustain modern learning environments for your players.

Yes, you can attend ongoing learning opportunities delivered outside of Surrey at all levels. To explore all events please visit the dedicated page on England Football Learning by following the link below. 


As per UEFA licencing requirements, Level 3 to 5 coaches are required to complete 15 hours of CPD every three years.
