Club/Coach Support Environment

The Coach Education pathway begins with the Coach Support Environment:

ECB Cricket Activator - The playing of cricket will not happen without a lot of things, which are often hidden to people, being done. If you want to make cricket happen, in whatever capacity, this course is right for you, especially if you are a young person exploring various options of how you can support cricket and develop yourself personally.

A bespoke course that allows clubs or groups of individuals to plan and prepare the delivery of any cricketing event (e.g. Kwik Cricket festival)

ECB Coach Support Worker - The Coach Support Worker course is ideal for someone who wants to help and support a qualified coach in the delivery and organisation of games and sessions but may not have the time, inclination or sport specific knowledge to qualify as a coach. This vital role supports the coach in action and development of players predominantly in the club environment.

COURSE DATES 2016 - 17
There are no corses planned for the winter of 2016/17, however we are looking into running CCSW courses in Clubs in April/May 2017.
If clubs have 6 or more people wanting to attend a CCSW course we can organise a specific course, we will need a minimum of one months notice to complete the administration. 


 Continuous Professional Development

After attaining a UKCC2 level qualification, the next step on the pathway is for coaches to attend the development modules within their chosen environment (children or young people).  There are three modules for each environment. Following completion of these three modules coaches can opt to attend a Diploma level assessment although the modules can also be attended as stanalone workshops.

UKCC3 - Performance Environment

At this stage of the pathway, all further courses are administered by the ECB with the next stage being the Performance Environment:

ECB Performance Coach course (UKCC3) - For coaches working in the following areas; county age group under 13 or above, Emerging Players Programme, County Academy programme, county professional programme, England Mens and Womens development programme.

The final stage on the Coach Education pathway is the elite coach environment. The ECB’s Elite Coach Development Programme consists of the Master Coach Award (UKCC LEVEL 4), which incorporates a Post Graduate Diploma in Personal and Professional Development, a range of Continuous Personal and Professional Development programmes and targeted individual support.
