Club accreditation 2016-17

It is a condition of affiliation to the Gwent County Football Association that all Junior Clubs engage in the FAW Club Accreditation Programme. Every season all junior clubs are required to get accredited by the FAW.

  • The FAW Club Accreditation Programme (CAP) for 2016-17 requires clubs to complete and submit a CAP Workbook (Excel), for which there is CAP workbook guide (PDF), as well as completing a DBS-Coach Ed checklist (Excel).
  • The later checklist is used for those volunteers and coaches that are in process of obtaining DBSs and are booking on FAW coach education courses.
  • As a minimum (Standard level accreditation) - you need one coach with Football Leaders Award per team and one qualified 1st Aid person per team (It can be the same named coach with leaders). Plus all volunteers with access to children need valid DBS and FAW number.
  • The full criteria for each level of accreditation (Standard, Bronze, Silver, Gold) is in the guide, and you can answer the questions in the workbook to see which level of accreditation you want to meet or wnat to apply for.
  • The CAP workbook and Checklist documents need to be submitted to the league by 31 July 2016.
  • Any volunteers and coaches that need their DBS and/or Football leaders/First Aid qualifications in order to meet the minimum standard must be on the checklist. That is their DBS is in process and they havebooked on a course.


If clubs fail to engage in this process they will be in danger of being suspended by The Football Association of Wales Compliance Department.
