LEADERSHIP AND VOLUNTEERING - HOW TO GET INVOLVED

ISFA PROGRAMME INFORMATION

ISFA has recently re-launched its FA Football Futures Award and is looking for more schools like King’s College Taunton to get involved.

What is the Football Futures Award?

The FA’s Football Futures Award is designed to recognise and reward any volunteering in football that you are doing at school (or outside of school) and give you something that you can take away for your CV or UCAS forms. Being a member of the award enables you to access opportunities within The FA’s Children & Young People team including applying to be on The FA’s National Youth Council (or local County FA Youth Councils) and attend The FA’s National Football Futures Camp at St Georges Park. Further information can be found in the Football Futures Information Booklet that can be downloaded from the bottom of this page.

How to sign up to Football Futures?

For 2015/16 season we have simplified the registration process, all you need to do is to complete and return the application form that can be downloaded from the bottom of this page, accompanied by the relevant evidence if applying for the Gold or Silver Awards. Once the form has been received you will receive a welcome pack including a logbook and full details on how to log your hours and apply for higher levels. Your email will go onto our Football Futures mailing list and you will be made aware of all upcoming opportunities that are available to you.

What are the different levels of the Football Futures Award?

Bronze Award: Everyone who signs up to the Football Futures Award is awarded the Bronze Award and this enables you to log your hours and receive the benefits of being a part of The FA’s national leadership programme.

Silver Award: Students who have either completed 50 hours of volunteering, or did 50 hours the previous season, can apply for the Silver Award (this is evidenced by either a log book or letter from school teacher confirming number of hours completed). Students achieving the Silver Award will in addition to being enabled to log your hours and receive the benefits of being a part of The FA’s national leadership programme, will also

Gold Award: Students who have either completed 100 hours of volunteering, or did 100 hours the previous season, can apply for the Gold Award (this is evidenced by either a log book or letter from school teacher confirming number of hours completed).

What types of activity / volunteering can I log?

You can log any form of coaching, refereeing, helping out with any part of a school or house football programme / event / team, running a school football facebook page or writing match reports, as well as any football volunteering you do out of school.

Is there any cost?

No, for the 2015/16 season the Football Futures Award is free of charge, so there is no better time to sign up, be a part of a national programme, and receive benefits along the way.
