The college will enrol students from across the county aged from 16 years old on a 2-year course combined with cricket training and matches built into the timetable.

Located at Headingley Stadium, home of Yorkshire CCC, students will benefit from the world class training facilities under the tutelage of Yorkshire Cricket coaches while studying for a BTEC level 3 in Sport.

The curriculum offers a diverse range of modules such as the Principles of Anatomy and Physiology in Sport, leading to a BTEC level 3. The qualification will give graduates a spring board into their future and the opportunity to progress to further education, apprenticeships or a career. The cricket coaching and matches will allow the students to work on all aspects of their game and, whilst the holistic benefits that sport can offer such as development of communication, team work and self-confidence will supplement their training and education.
