UEFA on Demand Education
UEFA on demand education is the best possible training and tailor-made support for your needs.
We are aware that every organisation has its own specific development needs that may not always be fulfilled by generic programmes. Sometimes specific interventions are required. Drawing on the expertise of the European football community, the UEFA Academy is able to construct and design specific educational sessions or long-term learning programmes – with or without academic certification – aligned with the objectives of the football associations. This type of customised and precise learning enables UEFA member associations to pinpoint the key areas that require greater attention and better understanding. To enable an organisation to reach its goals and create value, employees and leaders need specific skills and knowledge. Therefore, the UEFA Academy is offering two ways for national associations to align the development of their employees with their strategies:
The UEFA Academy can advise and support national associations, which want to create their own education programme. This support can range from providing the organisation with educational material to be translated into a national language to establishing contact with academic and professional experts in the field.
At the request of a national association or other football organisations, the UEFA Academy can create an education programme tailored to the needs of the organisation. In collaboration with a representative of the organisation, the UEFA Academy team will identify the specific needs, create a programme based on those needs and support the organisation with the implementation of the programme.
UEFA on demand education provides:
- support and guidance to connect with the right experts based on the needs of the organisation;
- help in developing the individual training sessions required by the organisation in order to enhance employees’ knowledge;
- expertise to overcome any challenges being faced;
- support to deliver the best possible training for staff;
- specific educational programmes aligned with the organisation’s strategy.
UEFA’s support in developing educational and training programmes for Romanian football represents an essential milestone and the optimum platform for the professional development of a new generation of managers. In 2015, the Romanian FA, with the help of UEFA, launched the Football Management Scheme, with four modules conducted by European experts and the participation of representatives from clubs from all divisions and football areas, along with input from the presidents of local county associations. This is a project, which today constitutes best practice. The support provided by UEFA for the educational programme provides a standard of good governance for the Romanian FA.
UEFA supported us in the creation of the first Georgian Football Federation Certificate in Football Management (GFF CFM), not only financially (the first course was fully financed by the UEFA HatTrick programme), but more importantly, in terms of the expertise, knowledge sharing and learning materials. UEFA allowed the GFF to translate the Handbook of Football Association Management into Georgian, which added value to our programme. Last but not least, the presence of UEFA definitely raised the image and quality of our education programmes.
