PFSA Level 1
Talent Identification In Women's Football
The art of talent detection
Delve into the intricacies of the women’s game by exploring talent identification through a completely different lens. The new Level 1 will focus on the art of talent detection as we explore the women’s game, from Equality and Inclusivity that cover pay gaps, media coverage disparity, social and cultural barriers, perceptions and stereotypes and sponsorship and funding to defining talent itself.
We are the only association offering a talent identification course exclusively within the women’s game designed and developed by experts currently engaged in elite-level football.
The new Level 1 is the first instalment in the new women’s talent identification series, with Level 2 due to arrive in December.
