The Academy, run in conjunction with fellow Surrey-based training and education provider SCL, is a new two-year full-time education and cricket development programme, open to cricketers aged 16 and 17.

The programme, which is government-funded, provides a cricket-based opportunity for young adults who are seeking an alternative to sixth form, or those who want to continue studying while combining cricket with gaining qualifications.

It will be delivered in partnership with SCL, based in Camberley, one of the UK's leading independent education providers through sport.

The two-year programme will see students aim towards achieving nationally-recognised qualifications either in BTEC Level 3 Sports Diploma or VRQ Level 2 Sports Diploma plus BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma in Sport or a VRQ Level 3 Diploma in Sport.

As part of the programme, students will also gain a sports coaching qualification and, where appropriate, their Maths and English GCSE or Functional Skills.

On the cricket side of things, the students will benefit from professional coaching by UKCC Level 2  and 3 coaches, gain work preparation skills and experience, compete in the Surrey Cricket Indoor League and play friendly fixtures in the summer.

The programme aims to provide career opportunities including cricket coaching, playing professionally or semi-professionally, sport and leisure management and sports development.

Trials will be held at Shrewsbury House School in Surbiton on Wednesday 17th February, from 6pm to 9pm.

All those keen to join the Academy this Autumn are encouraged to attend.
