BE. Football

Schools Programme

The BE. Football programme is where female pupils learn life skills through football. 

Designed to be delivered intra-school, it aims to support teachers and pupils to develop confidence in using football as a vehicle to develop broader skills.

BE. Football will explore how teachers can engage girls in curriculum physical education through football, identify and develop life skills and support girls to be empowered to lead football-related activity for others.

It will be delivered by members of the Youth Sport Trust Learning Academy and the FAW Trust tutor team. 

Online training will be provided to teachers in addition to a training day for both teachers and pupils.

Mentoring Programme

The BE. Football Mentoring Programme aims to build the confidence of women aged 18+ who are actively working or volunteering in football and want to progress in their careers.

Mentees include those who are interested in starting their first job in football or those looking to progress to a more senior role on or off the pitch. During the nine months, the mentees are paired with a mentor best suited to their field of work and future aspirations.

There are three face-to-face contact days where the cohort comes together to share experiences and learn from the best in the industry which has included UEFA Vice President, Laura McAllister, Former Cymru international Helen Ward and Liesel Jolly the Women’s Football Lead at Visa as well as other influential women in the industry.

The programme, now in its third year is incredibly successful with many of the mentees going on to secure full-time roles at the FAW or elsewhere in football.
