Why should I consider CoachED as my cricket coach accreditation?

Individuals looking to advance their cricket coach education, or coaches looking for a credible cricket coaching accreditation, are now able to do so, simply and timeously from the comfort of their own homes, through the CoachED online programme.

The game of cricket has changed and this has impacted how we coach. CoachED has developed a coach education programme that not only addresses these changes in real-time, but also empowers coaches of all levels with the necessary skills and knowledge to advance both themselves, and the game.
CoachED modules are all short courses formulated in a learner-driven design so that coaches can benefit from cricket coaching skills, drills and tools that are tailored to their individual requirements. Coaches that successfully complete the CoachED accreditation exam will receive their digital certificate and feature on the CoachED database.

What do I get if I only buy the CoachED library package?

CoachED has a comprehensive library providing users with up-to-date, engaging and interactive content on all of the 11 modules covered. This includes information and drills on all the 11 modules available. Users will receive digital knowledge badges for all modules completed that can be shared on social media.

What will I get if I buy the CoachED accreditation package?

The CoachED accreditation is for coaches that want to further your career with credible cricket coaching certification.

I already have a Level 1 or Level 2 certification but can’t seem to progress any further with my coaching qualification. Will this help?

We’ve engaged with many coaches around the world and found that there is commonality in barriers to upgrading cricket coaching skills. CoachED has designed a holistic, scalable platform that addresses this, providing opportunities to upskill for coaches of all levels. If you are already accredited in your country, CoachED offers you specific additional subjects and topics which are not covered in traditional coaching badges as well as the chance to further knowledge and accreditation in-line with the modern trends of the game.

Is the CoachED accreditation recognised globally?

CoachED is built on the knowledge of internationally acclaimed cricket coach Gary Kirsten and a highly experienced team of coaches who have coached around the world. CoachED contains all the information that is current, relevant and required for coaches working with teams and players of any age or experience.

CoachED has no affiliation to any other cricketing federation making it a true global coach education platform that has no bias and provides unrestricted access to any coaches wishing gain the required knowledge to become a cricket coach.

What if I don’t pass the accreditation exam?

Should you fail both attempts at the exam, you will need to purchase another exam module for a further two attempts to pass. We at CoachED want to provide you with the best opportunity to further your coaching career.
