We take a look back on what was a busy month in our March highlights:
We are pleased to launch two new online courses including The Level 2 Certificate in Self-harm and Suicide Awareness and Prevention and the Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills which are available for individuals over the age of 19 who are currently not in education.
As part of the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation’s reminiscence programme we arrange some special events to supplement the weekly Tuesday (11am) and Thursday (2pm) programme. Recently we have focused on the women’s game firstly in February inviting Cecilia Allen, Cricket Operations Manager, Yorkshire County Cricket Club and James Carr, Regional Director of Women’s Cricket and again in March with a theme of working in sport and playing with guests Rachel Hildreth, Yorkshire Cricket Foundation, Katie Levick, Pro-Coach and Phoebe Graham, Northern Diamonds.
Both of the special events were full, with the sessions being on Zoom the foundation aim to keep the numbers initially low to give everyone the time they would like to ask questions, share memories and chat. The feedback from these sessions has been really positive and indeed helps to celebrate the growth and development of women’s cricket.
We were delighted to launch of our 2021 National Citizen Service (NCS) Summer programme taking place in July and August.
Funded by the Government, (NCS) programmes are designed for teenagers aged 16 or 17 and help them establish a clear idea of what they want from their future through the power of independent challenges, team activities and workshops.
The Yorkshire Cricket College welcomed students back to the classroom and facilities at Emerald Headingley following a period of online learning in line with the Government restrictions.
We were delighted to announce the launch of the Yorkshire Walking Cricket Team.
Walking Cricket was developed as a new concept in 2018, making cricket accessible to older men and women or individuals who are semi-retired or retired. Walking Cricket is an adaptation of the traditional game of Cricket to suit those with less mobility and caters for different abilities.
We are also pleased to announce that Mac McKechnie has been appointed as Manager for the newly formed Yorkshire team.
Stay tuned to our channels through April as we announce further projects and content.
