If you have completed The FA Level 1 in Coaching Football AND The FA Youth Module 1 ONLY then you need to complete Block 2 and Block 3 of the new FA Level 2 in Coaching Football.You’ll be able to access Block 3 once you’ve completed Block 2.
If you have completed The FA Level 1 in Coaching Football, The FA Youth Module 1 AND The FA Youth Module 2 then you need to book onto Block 3 of the new FA Level 2 in Coaching Football ONLY.
