Sport England have withdrawn the generic Clubmark Scheme and will no longer act as a licence holder for NGBs including the England and Wales Cricket Board. The removal of the Sport England licence has enabled ECB to reflect on the merits of the current scheme and to enter a period of consultation with clubs and counties with a view to updating and improving the process for 2021.
As such there will be no reaccreditation or annual health checks in 2020, although clubs will still be required to demonstrate they are meeting the required standards, in particular through the Club Skills and Qualifications Table , ensuring all volunteers working in regulated activity with children have a current ECB DBS checks and (where appropriate) online safeguarding qualifications.
If any of your volunteers need to take a coaching or first aid qualification, details of upcoming courses can be found here. Details of how to access the online Safeguarding Young Cricketers qualification can be found on our Coaches page.
