Education and
Training Fund. 

NZCPA is proudly supported by

Principal Partner


Associate Partners

Our Education and Training fund strives to support both current and past cricketers to continue and complete education and career training to prepare them for a life beyond the cricket field. This support will be given in the form of annual grants to assist with fees and associated learning costs.

Our PD Managers will work alongside players to identify their career paths post cricket and encourage them to seek relevant qualifications and training.

Why an Education and Training fund?

  • To encourage players to begin, or continue, their professional qualifications to assist their transition from playing cricket.

  • Prepare players for a career outside of cricket to reduce stress related to retirement and transition.

  • To provide a positive focus for the players that will enhance their performance within cricket.

  • Enable players to retire from the game on their own terms and transition seamlessly into a career of their choice.​

Who is eligible to apply?
All member applications are considered on a case by case basis, but to be eligible players must be actively engaged with their PD Manager on their personal development plans.
