Our 1st Team Coach julie King has started a bespoke learning programme with the FA, the Mentee Development Programme began last week at St Georges Park as Julie joined 9 other coaches on the course.
Julie has brought some amazing insight to our sessions and we are delighted for Julie as she progresses her knowledge.
“Supported by The Chelsea Foundation, the Mentee Development Programme provides an opportunity for five female and five male coaches to gain invaluable experience and exposure to The FA’s Technical Department, as well as developmental experience with professional clubs.
The initiative is aligned to our wider coach inclusion and diversity programme, which is aimed at addressing the stubborn inequalities for coaches from Black, Asian, and mixed heritage backgrounds to develop and thrive in the game.
Each of our 10 coaches will receive a bespoke and agile learning programme tailored to their needs and ultimate goal of working in the professional game. They will also receive opportunities such as observing England national team development camps, study visits to professional clubs’ academies, season-long one-to-one mentoring, presentation and communication training, tactical and analysis workshops, and interview and CV masterclasses.” – Credit to the Boot Room website
