COACH bursary for those in Black, Asian Minority ethnic (BAME) communities

The COACH bursary programme has been designed by The Football Association, the Premier League, the Football League, the Professional Football Association (PFA) and the League Managers Association (LMA).

It is aimed at coaches within the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) community who aspire to furthering their qualifications and experience, from “Level 2” upwards. The FA will lead on the running of the project, overseen by a Strategy Group made up of representatives from the football authorities.

Funding has been made available by the football authorities, into one bursary fund, to enable applicants to do coaching qualifications and gain coaching experience, with opportunities to observe top coaches and to benefit from mentoring.

Here we go get cha popcorn ready

Positive discrimination at its finest

FANTASTIC!

Maybe a change in the hump it up field - talk **** on the field and keep shouting style of football will change and we can get out of the first round!
Bring on the skill and soul to the sport! Messi would never have made it in the early stages of his career in England that is for sure!

We shouldn't stand for this kind of racism!!!!!

Yep having no Asian professionals in the premiere league is an absolute disgrace!.. SACK all of the scouts in these clubs!

A coach qual from the English FA...erm no thanks....what makes them qualified to teach football coaching exactly.....

Have to say as an Asian accountant I find this quite insulting and racist that these funds are only being offered to bame community. If the shoe was on the other foot I'm sure there will be some form of public disapproval making the 10 o clock news

RACIST

Positive Discrimination and decided by white folk lol X)

this post should be remvoed

Wow, used to be BME communities, now it's BAME communites, if we get the Latinos in there, we can have the BLAME communities - them perhaps we can get 'Unrepresented' communities in there, hey, that's the BLAME-U communities - and there we have it, the antithesis of what it's all about - FFS, what a load of PC BS!!!!!

There be Pro's & Con's (though MAINLY CON'S) with most all/any forms of Racism the way I see it? (though i'm NOT condoning it as i'm from an Ethnic Background myself? .. so Racism the way I see it is kinda ignorant still!) .....

But remove the Post?, NO! .. if this Post truly aids/helps someone who can potentially benefit from such an ill-fated Post, then why not still ..... :-)

^^ Why not just remove it because of us - the community on this site - rating it about as cold and worthless as England's back 4... Although it is as PC as Bernard Manning, so it shouldn't be on here in the first place.

my son is paying for his own coaching courses, this isn't fair, should be free for everyone

We are the minority now.

so many unnecessary & ignorent comments..... what a shame

Should be free across the board

Well this has aided community relations

Absolute rubbish. The biggest inequality is in income. Always has been and always will be. Bursaries to help should be based on financial need and ability only. Anything else just makes matters worse.

How is Asia, the biggest and most populated continent classed as a minority...

So if your skin so happens to be white then you don't qualify? OMG. In any other walk of life this is blatant racism and discrimination. You couldn't advertise a job as being only for black/white or Asian ethnicity.

If white people did this we'd get bombed !
