Women who are considering a career but have no current qualifications and women who are practising coaches looking to achieve a UKCC level II cricket coaching certificate are invited to join with the Women into Coaching 2 – London initiative which aims, by the end of July 2008, to have 210 women from across London qualified as sports coaches up to level III in a number of sports coaching, leadership and management courses.

These courses are fully funded by the Learning and Skills Council (LSC) Pan London European Social Fund Programme.

• become part of a wider network of quality, motivated coaches
