This book highlights the latest advances in coach education and development through collaborative research co-ordinated by the English Football Association, the only national governing body of sport to run a coaching research programme. Advances in Coach Education and Development presents the first set of studies generated by this programme that display how research has informed policy and practice within the FA.

Divided into three parts, each investigates an aspect of this programme such as the FA’s coaching education and development provision, its commitment to developing the developer, and how its coaches put their knowledge into practice. Each chapter includes sections that examine current issues, suggest considerations for other governing bodies and pose key questions including:

  • What can other governing bodies learn from the FA’s programme?
  • What is the best way to capture and compare different coaching systems?
  • How can other organisations optimise success within their coach education and development programmes?
  • How can future research continue to unpack and understand the complex role of coach educators?

Bringing together a unique set of studies covering every level of football, from elite to grassroots, this book is essential reading for any serious sports coaching student, researcher or coach educator.
