SMP have run stand-alone, in-house F.A Level-1 & -2 coaching courses for local young people since 2006.
In partnership with the London F.A, we have produced over 200 qualified local coaches at Level-1, Level-2 and UEFA B Licence.

Three coaches have gained the UEFA B coaching licence through SMP, including Ashley Bosah, the current first team coach at Tooting & Mitcham United F.C..
The F.A Level-1 course is now the ‘Introduction to Coaching Football’ course and is delivered entirely online. To pass Introduction to Coaching Football, candidates will need to work through e-learning modules, unlocking new ones each week, as well as completing a short online assessment.
The F.A UEFA C course has replaced the FA Level 2, which has now been discontinued. The course will last for approximately 16-20 weeks, supporting the principles of spaced learning and giving candidates the opportunity to reflect and practice what they’ve learnt in real-time. Candidates must be actively coaching a group of players who regularly undertake training and play in organised or competitive fixtures. These can be made at SMFC training sessions and matches.
