Applications are now being sought for the upcoming Irish FA UEFA Pro Diploma Course due to commence in May 2021

The highest coaching qualification in Europe, the UEFA Pro Licence is now a mandatory requirement to manage in the Northern Ireland League, other European leagues and UEFA Club and International competitions

The UEFA Pro Licence is an elite coaching qualification intended, by UEFA, only for those coaches who are currently, or who have the potential to be, working at the top professional leagues, clubs or at International level. It is not intended to be sought by coaches as an extra qualification to add to their CV if they have not the intention to work at elite competitions level. If it is not your intention, or if it’s unlikely you will have the opportunity, to work at elite professional level, we would encourage you to find alternative courses and learning opportunities to extend your CV and improve your football knowledge without necessarily pursuing the UEFA Pro Licence.

*Candidates must hold a valid UEFA ‘A’ Licence to be eligible to apply

Applicants must email Lorna Stewart: for an application form.

You must also submit the following:

A short CV (no longer than 2 x A4 pages) to include:
Coaching experience
Playing experience
Why it is important to your career to be accepted onto the upcoming Pro Licence with the Irish FA

For those coaches who have not obtained their UEFA A Licence through the Irish FA, you must provide evidence that you have a valid UEFA A Licence

You must also possess sufficient spoken and written skills in the official course language, which is English

Please send all relevant documents and application form to Lorna Stewart: no later than 5.00pm on Fri 30 October 2020
