Yorkshire Cricket College Final Open Day 21st July
Finishing your GCSE’s? Planning your next step? Become a student athlete with The Yorkshire Cricket College.
The Yorkshire Cricket College, starting in September 2017 is open to students aged from 16-18 years old. Located at Headingley Stadium, students will undertake a 2 year, BTEC Level 3 extended diploma in Sport delivered by our education partner SCL. This will be combined with cricket training and matches built into their timetable under the tutelage of Yorkshire Cricket Coaches.
The BTEC qualification represents the equivalent of 3 A-Levels and can provide the platform for students to progress to higher education or be a springboard into working life.
After three successful open days, The Yorkshire Cricket Foundation will be hosting another final open day on Friday 21st July, before Yorkshire Vikings take on Birmingham Bears in a Natwest T20 Blast! The open day will take place at 4.30-6.30pm and all attendees will receive 2 free tickets to watch the evening’s game.
The open day will include a presentation by SCL outlining the BTEC level 3 qualification and the different modules involved. You will also hear about the benefits of attending the college such as the work experience and higher education opportunities available as well as listening to our expert coaches who will give you an overview of the cricket training the college has to offer.
After the presentation, students and parents will have the opportunity to speak to the tutors about the 2 year course.
During this open day, there is also an opportunity for those who have already attended an interview to size up their kit and ask any additional questions before they begin their journey as a student athlete.
“We want to create a really good college – somewhere that’s a great place to be educated, and a really good teaching environment. The bonus is that cricket is built into the timetable 3 times per week! The Yorkshire Cricket College will help students realise their potential both on and off the field” – Nick Robinson, Yorkshire Cricket Foundation
The final open day will take place on 21st July at Headingley Cricket Ground, 4.30-6.30pm. To register for the Open Day Click Here
