Chase football coaching programme

Harnessing the power of football to help individuals develop transferable skills that can unlock their potential, on and off the pitch.
Building transferable skills for life

Building transferable skills for life

Not everyone has the same opportunities when it comes to developing life skills that can help secure a job, or support career growth.

As proud Official Banking Partner of the Home Nations Football Teams, we're helping change that – by improving access to football coaching qualifications for individuals where cost is a barrier.

The goals of our programme

Develop transferable skills

We're offering nearly 3,000 fully-funded places on grassroots coaching courses, to help people kickstart a career in coaching and develop transferable skills for life.

Support career pathways

We're funding UEFA A and UEFA B professional coaching bursaries for 85 football coaches, where the cost of qualifications is a barrier, to help further their careers.

Provide training for everyone

Soon, we'll be offering free online training packs for anyone to access, so more people have the tools they need to grow key transferable skills like empathy, critical thinking, self-awareness and self-reflection.

Breaking down coaching barriers

Breaking down coaching barriers

49% of adults in the lowest socio-economic groups have received no skills training since they left school. This can be because development resources aren't always available to people who need them the most.

Football is one of the UK's most-loved sports, so we're using its power to tackle this issue by funding professional coaching qualifications.
