The Coach Education Programme includes a few changes to the Safeguarding and Protecting Children (SPC) Courses. Existing coaches who have previously completed a face to face SPC workshop will now have the option of completing an online Safeguarding Young Cricketers (SYC) course through the ECB Online E Learning Portal. Candidates completing the Coaching Children/Young People & Adults courses will have this included in the cost of their programme. The SYC course is FREE for existing coaches

All newly qualified coaches and volunteers will need to attend the SPC workshop. The workshop lasts for three hours and focuses on identifying the foundations of safeguarding, good coaching practice and child protection. The SPC workshop has an attached cost of £30 per candidate.
