ECB Continual Professional Development Workshops

Coaches who have completed either the ECB Coaching Children's Cricket or ECB Coaching Young People and Adults' Cricket courses and have gained a sufficent amount of experience through working with players in these areas, should next consider attending the Continual Professional Development Workshops.

These workshops are designed to act as “stepping stones” for individuals who wish to work towards being assessed for the new Coaching Diploma.  However, coaches can also opt to access the workshops as standalone CPD (Continual Professional Development) sessions. A certificate of attendance will be issued for each workshop attended.
