About The Football Association
The role of a Technical Director in football is dynamic and it’s grown in prominence and number in recent years. To support current and aspiring ‘Technical Directors’ – a role that goes by many different titles – this course aims to create a journey of learning, developing skillful leaders within football capable of creating sustained success.
The FA Level 5 for Technical Directors course focuses on achieving success for football clubs through high-performance culture backed up by an aligned vision and strategy. The six course modules span 25 days across 20 months. Leading Edge Team Coaches are integral to the programme as leadership mentors, coaching delegates one-to-one in between modules around specific development needs and helping to transfer the course learning into the day-to-day role.
Hot off the heels of the first cohort’s graduation, Leading Edge were invited to extend support for the 2020 programme.
