Torquay Cricket Club have made a bold statement when it comes to (Equality), Diversity and Inclusion. The club will almost certainly currently be unique in Devon by having a volunteer complete the ECBs Inclusion and Diversity e-learning package for First Class County Cricket. Evo an accredited ECB Scorer obtained access to the package to both assist the club and aid the development of his own career. As Evo said, “with compulsory training coming in for all key personnel in the recreational game completing the package has enabled the club to get ahead of the game in this crucial aspect of club life.” Evo went on to say, “the package was really interesting as it made you think outside the box, excuse the pun, with such things as the ‘super chicken model.’ We can only hope the package for the recreational game is of an equal standard.” For any who is interested, don’t yawn, but Evo is more than willing to explain the research behind the “super chicken model.”
The E-Learning Team at the ECB must dread Evo’s email address popping up in their inbox, but I can assure you he is already planning what packages he wants to access over the Festive Season to assist the, club.
