Personal Development Programme (PDP)
The PDP will be delivered under two headings of Education Guidance and Career Transitioning. We are laying the building blocks to implement these fully over the next 12-18 months. Our priority is securing funding for a player development manager to work with both the Women’s and Men’s Teams. This Education and Career guidance is currently done via ourselves on a limited basis and by player development managers from Sport Ireland and Sport NI.
- Career guidance
- Short courses
- Trade skills
- Coaching qualifications
- CV creation
- Work experience
- Short term jobs
- Longer term employment
Our target is to discuss personal goals with each member on an annual basis to plan out a pathway for them towards life after cricket. This will involve upskilling them by completing short courses, coaching qualifications, trade apprenticeships, degrees and workshops. We will assist with the organisation of such programmes and, where possible, costs of these will be subsidised or covered by the ICA. As mentioned, we aim to employ a PDM to assist with these meetings and to aid the organisation of such courses and workshops. We aim not only to assist the transition into life after cricket but also to improve performance while playing by reducing stress related to the uncertainty of the transition.
