Coaching in Education


Football plays an important role within schools, colleges and universities. From the first day at school until the last day at university.

North Riding FA offer progammes, initiatives and schemes to provide teachers and coaches at every stage of education the tools to inspire new generations to love the game.

The FA Skills Programme works in over 2500 primary schools each year, providing lessons for the children against the requirements of the PE National Curriculum and supports teachers’ professional learning.

As well as helping to develop the technique, ball skills and confidence of children in primary schools, The FA Skills coaches aim to pass on invaluable lesson ideas and guidance on the delivery of football to the pupils’ teachers.

If your school hasn't had a chance to work with The FA Skills programme yet, please send us an email at
