Rio Ferdinand Foundation supports young people to gain qualifications

Over the past few weeks, the Rio Ferdinand Foundation have been supporting a group of young people to gain Football Coaching qualifications and additional training in Equality and Diversity, and Inclusive Coaching. ​

The FA Level 1 coaching course went extremely well, with over 20 successful candidates passing the course! Even despite the weather!! Our FA tutor Lucy was fantastic and had us powering through the mud and rain, working hard to learn the fundamentals of coaching and some fun exercises to use in our sessions.

404 Not Found We are very proud to say that all of the young people who participated are going on to use their FA Level 1 qualification within volunteering or employment opportunities, to benefit their communities!

We are very grateful for the help of our friends at the University of Salford in offering a venue to host the qualification. And to the Media City team for letting us use their pitch for our further training. They’ve asked us to help publicise some of their health and fitness opportunities:
