Applications now open for Coach Bursary Scheme 2024

Thursday 18th January 2024

We are delighted to announce the launch of the 2024 Bursary Scheme for Coaches to assist those wishing to begin their coaching journey. Bursaries, funded by the generous support provided by the England and Wales Cricket Trust, are intended to increase the diversity of learners taking their first step into coaching, gaining a qualification or taking the next step on their coach development journey.

Groups that have been identified to increase the diversity of learners accessing coach development programmes are:

  • Potential coaches/existing coaches that are female
  • Potential coaches/existing coaches from ethnically diverse communities
  • Potential coaches/existing coaches with a disability
  • Potential coaches/existing coaches experiencing financial hardship.

A bursary can be awarded to learners that register on ECB Support Coach, ECB Foundation Coach or ECB Core Coach programmes that take place between 1st February 2024 and 31st January 2025.

Coaches applying on basis of financial hardship
Anyone wanting to access coach development that is experiencing financial hardship will be awarded a bursary of up to 100% of the national price of the programme.

Once an applicant receives confirmation they will need to complete their programme registration using a discount code to redeem their bursary.

Coaches applying on basis of diversity
Anyone wanting to access coach development that is female, from an ethnically diverse community or has a disability who is not experiencing hardship will be awarded a bursary of up to 50% of the national price of the programme.

Once an applicant receives confirmation they will need to complete their programme registration and make full payment and upon attendance at face-to-face modules, competence and certification they will receive a refund to redeem their bursary.
