The course will follow the content for the Sport Coaching and Development study programme. Poor performance on the academic part of the course will result in you being removed from the Academy.
The Academy cricket training will be held over three days per week. You will be expected to attend every training session as well as every academic lesson. Access to GCSE resits will be prioritised over your access to training.
Assessment on the study programme will be continuous over the year. Assessment methods will vary depending on the subjects delivered. See the Sports Coaching and Development pages for further details.
On successful completion of the course, learners may wish to progress to the Foundation Degree in Sports Coaching at Derby College or to seek employment within the sport and leisure sector, notably with the Andrew Flintoff Cricket Academy or Activate Sport.
For learners studying on Level 2 programmes, progression to Level 3 is dependent on your successful achievement of any GCSE resits taken.
