Northern NSW Football is delighted to announce a partnership with the Oceania Football Confederation to improve access to coach development material.
The partnership will see NNSWF encourage its coaches to access OFC’s coach development system and content through the OFC Learn Portal.
The portal is a learning community for coaches looking to further develop their knowledge, skills and positive impact on the game.
“This is an opportunity for us to build our network across Asia and the Oceania region,” NNSWF Head of Football Development Peter Haynes said.
“By providing access to this portal to our coaches we can help provide them more learning and development opportunities in their own time and at their leisure.”
OFC E-Learning Development Manager Sean Douglas said OFC Learn was set up to provide an engaging and accessible approach to education, allowing learners to access information and educate themselves at a time and place that suits them.
“The beauty of this approach is that learners from all over the world can share and learn from each other,” Douglas said.
“That’s why we’re happy to welcome our friends from NNSWF to join the discussions and share their experiences with learners from across the pacific and all over the world. The site has been set up to facilitate this sharing, so it’s fantastic that NNSWF will contribute as part of a global learning community.
“OFC Learn focuses on coaching and refereeing but we are also hard at work creating learning opportunities for club administrative staff and medical staff. Our recent FIFA club licensing webinar for women’s football and our discussion group for physiotherapy are great examples of this.
“There is much more to come. I look forward to seeing NNSWF coaches on the site and engaging with them.”
CPD points for courses completed through the OFC Learn platform will be determined on a course by course basis and attributed to coaches once a certificate of completion is submitted to NNSWF.
