The two-day event, which combines entertaining and insightful theory lectures with world class practical sessions, also serves as revalidation for UEFA Qualified Coaches.

The FAW National Coaches Conference, will also be offered to an international audience with online access to all of the information. 

The online offer is open to international coaches who need to revalidate their qualification and are based outside of the UK.

The National Coaching Conference website will be pre-loaded with content and is available from 25 May and all live content from the weekend will be recorded and made available post conference and available to review until the 30 June.

Wilkinson is joined on the early list of confirmed speakers by France U21 boss Henry, who completed his UEFA Pro Licence with the FAW in 2018, and his assistant Gael Clichy, who is a current FAW UEFA Pro Licence candidate.

Southampton boss Russell Martin has taken time out of his pursuit for English Premier League promotion with Southampton to confirm his place in the exciting line-up for the event titled ‘In Pursuit of Excellence: Fostering a Positive Culture to Drive High Performance’.

The 2024 conference will see hundreds of coaches, from across Wales and beyond, gather to discuss the latest innovations and trends in football coaching.
