Paul Griffiths, Co-Founder and Director of Business Development said “Aspire are thrilled to be working with the leading cricket coaching provider in the country. Sixth form or college isn’t the route all young people wish to take, and the Complete Cricket College gives young people the opportunity to enhance their cricket game, whilst working towards a Level 3 post-16 qualification.”

“This is a real alternative to further education which is why we’ve developed a programme that offers a quality learning environment to help students develop a range of techniques, personal skills and attributes essential for successful performance in working life or in higher education.”

Talking about the new partnership, Complete Cricket Managing Director, David Smith commented “The Complete Cricket College is a fantastic opportunity for young, aspiring cricketers who want to further their education. Students can expect to train like a professional cricket player and receive high level advice from some of the best coaches in the country whilst studying for a recognised qualification. We’re looking forward to sharing more information at one of the world’s most famous cricket stadiums later next month.”
