As per FIFA Report:
Women in football are benefiting significantly from the FIFA Coach Education Scholarship (CES) program. It aids in the better training and certification of 41 female coaches from various nations. The program’s primary objective is to increase the number of women who are qualified to coach.
One strategy FIFA uses to promote women’s football in all of its affiliated associations throughout the world is the CES initiative. Talented female coaches and athletes are given financial assistance for coach education. Additionally, the program offers women-only online coaching and mentoring apprenticeships.
One of the participants gaining from the CES program is Junpen Seesruam, the assistant coach for Thailand’s national squad. She is appreciative of the chance to participate in the FIFA-sponsored A Diploma programme for the Asian Football Confederation. Seesruam intends to use the information and abilities she acquires from the program to enhance Thailand’s national team’s performance.
The CES program is accessible to all 211 FIFA member associations, guaranteeing that female coaches from all around the world can take advantage of it. FIFA pays for coaches’ education costs if their applications are accepted. Additionally, participants get access to tools and online mentoring that will help them grow as coaches. Experienced female coaches act as mentors throughout their entire journey, offering helpful support and direction.
The FIFA Coach Education Scholarship program emphasizes developing a close bond between mentors and mentees in addition to providing mentorship. A top mentor is matched with each participant for a full year. The curriculum gives mentors access to contemporary mentoring techniques, and mentees learn how to take full advantage of their mentor’s guidance. The mentor-mentee relationship is strengthened and long-lasting connections are encouraged by this cooperative approach.
Candidates must already hold their C coaching license and be in charge of a squad that is actively competing to be eligible for a FIFA scholarship for coach education. The program’s objectives are clear:
1. Preparing female athletes and coaches for long and prosperous careers.
2. Assisting female athletes in their move into coaching positions.
3. Expansion of the number
The FIFA Coach Education Scholarship program offers women coaches a special chance to enhance their careers and have a positive influence on the game of football. FIFA is promoting positive change and building a more inclusive and diverse future for women in football coaching by developing mentorship, recognizing talent, and providing resources.
