Six flexible half-termly projects have been developed with teachers and include PowerPoints, videos and competitions and these can be tailored to suit your school’s requirements.

The programme has been developed by the International Cricket Council (ICC), England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), and in conjunction with leading sporting charity Chance to Shine.

Why is it worth engaging with the Schools Programme?
