Our business is football.
At Oceania Football Confederation, we’re investing in the futures of our players, coaches and leaders.
The OFC Education Centre is a ground-breaking new initiative developed by Oceania Football Confederation to grow the game and build towards the objectives of the OFC Strategic Plan.
The Oceania-wide programme will provide each member association with an educational institute where participants can share knowledge, skills and experiences.
Participants will receive OFC-recognised training and qualification in coaching, refereeing, sport administration and management, sport medicine and fitness, high performance and elite development, club management and development and event management.
The curriculum for each topic is be divided into four levels: foundation courses, certification courses, licencing courses and refresher courses.
Participants will gain regionally-recognised accreditation as they progress through the levels.
Following the introduction to a topic through the foundation course, participants will continue to the MA-delivered course to become certified in that topic. The participant will then continue to the OFC-delivered course to receive their regional recognised licence.
By aligning all courses across all member associations, OFC can provide a more comprehensive strategy for the future, a clear pathway for participants and qualification which is transferrable across OFC’s 11 member associations.
By training locally-based instructors to deliver the courses in their member associations, OFC is empowering leaders to contribute to the development of football in their home nations and communities.
Through centralised training of instructors and local implementation, the OFC Education Centre aims to:
Offer educational hubs and resources for the development of careers in football.
Upskill local volunteers to develop football in their communities
Encourage and guide players, coaches and volunteers to improve their abilities.
Provide a sustainable Oceania-wide educational network.
