Coach Education Programme released

Durham Cricket Coaches Association have released their full Coach Education Programme for 2020.

The Coach Education Programme in Durham offers three types of courses, providing various opportunities to club volunteers to get qualified ahead of the season.

In the new year we will be running four Foundation I courses – England and Wales Cricket Board’s (ECB) new coach qualification that has been created to help more people take their first steps into coaching cricket.

Following the introduction of Foundation I, this is now the entry level qualification required to coach cricket.

We will also be running ECB’s old Level 2 Coaching Young People and Adults’ Cricket course in February for the last time before the pathway changes completely next year and candidates for a Level 2 qualification are required to hold a Foundation I.

One Coach Support Worker course is also available in March 2020.

Available Courses

This winter we are offering the following courses:

Coach Support Worker – Sunday, 8th March 2020

Suitable for anyone aged 16 or over, who would like to support qualified coaches during their sessions.

ECB Foundation I – four courses available

Entry level ECB coaching qualification suitable for anyone aged 17 and over who would like to lead coaching sessions independently.

Level 2 – Coaching Young People and Adults – starting on Sunday 2 February 2020
