Already a Coach?

Whilst the new structure creates opportunities for new coaches to access the game of cricket it is also crucial that the structure helps to re-engage existing coaches and even those who may once have been involved but now, no longer are.

ECB Coach Education

A range of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) options as well as more clearly defined guidance for coaches working in different environments means that existing coaches are well catered for by both courses and resources which will offer opportunities for them to learn more about the thing they love, coaching.

Existing ECB coaches (all existing qualifications will continue to be recognised) will have many more opportunities to continue to engage or re-engage with coach education. Existing coaching roles with be examined in light of the new system, we will attribute minimum operating standards to coaching roles for coaches qualifying in the new structure.

Those coaches with existing ECB qualifications will be offered routes back into coach education by virtue of a combination of their coaching role, the qualification they hold and their coaching experience.

Existing Coaching Assistants and Level 1 Coaches will be prompted to take either the ECB Certificate in Coaching Children or the ECB Certificate in Coaching Young Players and Adults. Existing Level 2 coaches and beyond will be signposted to the appropriate coach education based on their current coaching role and experiences (accessing relevant Child or Young Person and Adult CPD, or a combination of both).
