Football CPD – FA Whistlers Course for Secondary School Teachers

Whistlers aims to help young people develop a basic understanding of football and refereeing, as well as an awareness and understanding for the need of figures of authority within sport and society. Children and young people can form significant, meaningful relationships with their sporting coaches, who can offer support as valuable, positive role models.

The programme helps assist in reducing conflict within school and engaging children with behavioural issues in positive diversionary activity. It also raises awareness of the principles of ‘fair play,’ and helps young people unify and enjoy the school environment, drawing on the importance and experiences of sport.

1. Develop an understanding of the target audience (11-14-year-old girls) and impact this training can have on them and others
2. Orientation around the training resources and student resource
