Ever wanted to combine sport with your studies? Become a student athlete with the Yorkshire Cricket College

The Yorkshire Cricket College are delighted to offer two qualifications for students aged 16-18:

• NCFE Level 3 Extended Diploma In Sport
• Level 3 BTEC In Business

Both courses are delivered exclusively at Emerald Headingley Stadium, working in partnership with education provider SCL and delivery partner Pro Coach.

The Yorkshire Cricket Foundation’s educational programmes aim to utilise the power of cricket, the inspirational environment and world class facilities at Emerald Headingley to give the participants an unforgettable educational and cricketing experience.

The educational offer is aimed towards students aged 16-18 years old looking for a non-traditional educational environment. Cricket is used to holistically develop the students by developing team work skills, enhancing self-confidence, leadership ability and autonomy. Furthermore, the cricket sessions are a motivation to complete assignments on time and ensure a mature attitude in the classroom.

Outside of the classroom and training setting, the Yorkshire Cricket College provides unique personal development opportunities through extra curricular qualifications, work experience and volunteering at major events across the summer.
