Welcome to the Wiltshire Coaches home page. Offering a quality Coach Education programme and opportunities for coaches to learn and develop is a big priority for Wiltshire Cricket. At the moment there are hundreds of coaches working across the county at club, district and county level and there is a huge amount of support available to coaches at each of these levels.
The diagram to the left shows the current pathway for coaches so if you are a new coach wishing to begin your coaching career or are an existing coach wanting to progress up the coaching ladder you can see clearly where your next step is.
For information on which of the courses are being offered in Wiltshire, please visit the Courses section of this site where you will also find more detailed information on the content covered in the UKCC1, UKCC2 and Club Coach awards.
On top of the ECB Coaching Pathway there are several other courses that coaches need to be keep updated on a regular basis in order to remain fully qualified. These include Child Protection and First Aid courses.
Once you become a qualified coach you receive the opportunity to join the ECB Coaches Association. The ECBCA is the professional body for coaches in England and Wales and offers some fantastic services. In Wiltshire we are now encouraging all new coaches to join the ECBCA at the time of signing up to a new course.
