Coach Education: the pathway to successful coaching

Certificated courses are available to suit all ages and abilities, in addition to an integral education programme for teachers wishing to deliver cricket. ECB Coaching qualifications are governed by UKCC Certification.

The shift in ECB Course Direction and Content is driven by the desire to make coaching more “Player-Centred”. With this in mind the full Coach Qualification (allowing a qualified coach to work alone) will begin at “Certificate” level. This will be underpinned by two shorter courses aimed broadly at training people to “support” fully qualified coaches – “Coach Support Worker” and “Cricket Activator”. Following on from these introductory courses, coaches will then be able to select one of two “entry-points” to become a fully qualified coach – a coach can either attend the Certificate in Coaching Children Course or the Certificate in Coaching Young People and Adults Course – both courses carry the same level of Certification – but crucially allow a coach to be trained in disciplines more suited to working with players of a specific age range – therefore making a coach more aware of a players specific needs.
