The Football Kenya Federation (FKF) is facilitating a series of nationwide CAF C License coaching courses.
This is a follow up the Basic/Advanced Basic coaching courses which 2000 coaches attended last year.
The three-week Confederation of African Football (CAF) C License courses got underway on Monday.
“When we were elected a year ago, we made a commitment to change the game by ensuring that we provide quality education for our coaches,” FKF president Nick Mwendwa said.
“It is our belief that this important course will not only help build capacity but also bridge a huge and sensitive gap that has in the past denied local coaches job opportunities both home and abroad,” Mwendwa added.
Nairobi, Coast, Nyanza and Western regions are the areas which will be covered, with a second phase set for November.
The aim of the FKF’s initiative is to increase the pool of local qualified coaches with CAF C, CAF B and CAF A licenses by the end of their four-year term.
