The four Pillars of ECFA which shape our football development work are:

Participation, Competitions, Workforce, Community



ECFA aims to develop the future workforce by providing students with a world-leading FE youth leadership educational and training programme, which provides high-quality learning and enhances student employability. We support member colleges and stakeholders to recruit, develop, deploy and retain student volunteers through a cross-curricular approach, using football leadership as value added to students’ study programmes.
