Whether you’ve long since hung-up your boots and want to try your hand at coaching or are simply looking to further your knowledge of the game, the Club is offering you the chance to take your FA Level One or Level Two Coaching Certificates with the help of a professional Premier League Club.

Level One Coaching Certificate

Learning from some of Tottenham Hotspur’s coaching experts, you will be given the chance to become qualified in both practical and theoretical aspects of coaching football. The course is the first of five badges and will enhance your general football knowledge, as well as qualifying you to coach club teams for children aged between six and 14 – ideal for those wishing to set-up small clubs or teams for their children.

"Level One really gives you a great flavour of what it takes to be a good coach," explained our First Team Coach, Chris Hughton. "To get to a professional level takes a lot of dedication and commitment but Level One has been designed to make you competent without taking away the enjoyment."

Level Two Coaching Certificate

The FA Level Two Coaching Certificate is available for those aged 16 years or older, and will enable you to advance your coaching career with the help of a professional Premier League Club.

This course is divided into two parts - initial training and final assessment, and is intended for those who are committed to coaching football to young people or who have one or more of the following:

  • Level One Certificate in Coaching Football
  • At least two years coaching experience at school, club, football in the community scheme setting, or played the game at senior club level
  • The FA Junior Team Managers' Award

Students will learn how to coach in technical (unopposed), skill (opposed) and small sided game (six v six) situations, with the knowledge gained being put to the test via three initial practical assessments. Further internal assessments will take the form of a Laws of the Game written examination, the completion of several course tasks and a coaching portfolio.
