Safeguarding for specialist roles (on-line)

We are pleased to launch ‘Safeguarding for Specialist Roles’, the ECB’s new online safeguarding course.

The new course, ‘Safeguarding for Specialist Roles’ replaces Safeguarding Young Cricketers and is designed to support individuals in cricket who are working with children and young people. ‘Safeguarding for Specialist Roles’ is made up of one 60-minute module, suitable for everybody, whatever their role in cricket and four shorter bolt-on modules:

Safeguarding For Captains and Team Managers


Safeguarding For Coaches and Activators


Safeguarding For Committee Members and CSO’s


Safeguarding For Umpires and Scorers


Individuals in cricket are invited to complete the one-hour module, followed by the shorter module that best reflects their role. Individuals are welcome to complete all four bolt-on modules if they wish. Safeguarding is everybody’s responsibility, and the new course aims to provide everyone in cricket with knowledge and advice to create a safe environment and respond appropriately to concerns.

Upcoming Safe Hands Courses

Ifield CC

Monday 15th April 2024 - 18:30 to 21:30


Sussex CCC 

Thursday 6th June - 18:30 to 21:30



For 2023/24 we are maintaining our current position of not charging for Safe Hands courses in Sussex. We are aware that some other counties do charge an administration fee.

We do therefore ask that if you book a course that you ensure that you, or a replacement from your club, attends on the night.

We are also very grateful to the clubs around the county who offer their facilities for free. We would always be pleased to hear of other clubs who may be prepared to host a course. This ensures that we can keep the costs down and offer the courses at different locations across the county.

Please contact Nick May or your local Territory Manager if your club can help.

Overseas Players Course

Overseas Professionals coming to play in the UK during 2023 on a Tier 5 Visa and have not already completed a UKCC Level 2 coaching course or equivalent need to complete the ECB Core Coach course.

NB: The attendee MUST register on the course with their own email address and make sure that their address MATCHES their VISA application address.
