This academy is designed to provide participants with bespoke learning opportunities and experiences to facilitate their progress along their coaching journey. The academy will have no more than 20 members who will work together for a year, under the guidance of London FA CCD Anthony Ferguson, to develop each others’ capacity.

The LCA will meet bi-monthly across 2019 in a range of settings to help broaden participants experiences. Attendance at all meetings is expected, proposed dates are as follows:

  • 18/11/19

There is no pre-required level for coaches to apply, you must simply be a member of the FA’s Licensed Coaches Club AND affiliated with London FA. Female and disabled coaches or those working in these areas are highly encouraged to apply so that the group is reflective of London football as a whole.

Applications should be made by submitting a CV (no more than 2 pages) and a cover letter answering these two questions:

  • Why do you want to be a part of the LCA?
  • What would you bring to the group?
