Continuous Professional Development (CPD)
Continuous Professional Development (CPD), is part of the coaches on-going commitment to learning and education, assisting the coach to become better in their current role and prepare them for future roles, in and away from football.
Coaching is a process of ‘continual improvement’ and coaches are encouraged to build their knowledge, skills and experiences so they can enhance their performance and the performance of those they coach.
A coach who is a continuous learner, who is curious, who constantly works to understand others, who listens, who can reflect and adapt and who has a philosophy that underpins their practice, will be a highly effective coach in the high performance environment. The AFLCA CPD program is designed to help shape such a coach.
