Football Queensland (FQ) is excited to confirm the details of a female-only C Diploma course, which is set to begin this November.
The course will kick off at The Lakes FC on Friday, 25 November and will be just the second ever female-only C Diploma held in Queensland.
“As the growth of the game is underpinned by the quality and number of our coaches, Football Queensland is committed to supporting that growth by improving education and development opportunities for coaches across the state,” FQ CEO Robert Cavallucci said.
“With the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia and New Zealand 2023 approaching, there has never been a better time to embrace the potential of our female coaches here in Queensland by delivering tailored development opportunities specifically for those who are looking to progress into a more advanced coaching space.”
FQ Club Development Ambassador – Head of Coaching Davide Bertamini said the course is a fantastic opportunity for female coaches to gain new qualifications, while also providing a launchpad for future courses to be held across the state.
“The C Diploma is a crucial aspect of the AFC/Football Australia pathway and provides the necessary foundation to improve upon all technical aspects of the game,” he said.
“Providing high-quality education opportunities for our female coaches is essential to the growth of our game which is why we are committed to delivering more female-only coaching courses not only this year but in 2023, 2024 and 2025.
“We’re excited to host Queensland’s second ever female-only C Diploma course later this year, and will also be introducing new measures to assist female coaches in the transition from community level coaching to the next stage of the coaching pathway.”
The female-only C Diploma course will be held across several days beginning in November 2022 and finishing in March 2023.
