Each coaching course has its own specific pre-requisites (some are open entry) and these can be found on each course specific page of our website. It is the learner’s responsibility to ensure they meet the pre-requisites before booking onto the chosen course.

No, learners are required to attend all dates and times associated to the course they have booked onto. Failure to attend all dates and times will result in non-qualification and individuals will need to book and pay to attend the course again in full to become certificated.

We are unable to reserve places or take part payments for any of our courses. Bookings are taken on a first come first served basis from online registration where full payment is required.

Unfortunately not. Each individual learner is required to book their place using their own FAN and Password.

This is to ensure our information on medical conditions, emergency contacts etc is accurate and up to date. The booking agreement is always between Gloucestershire FA and the individual learner.
