The partnership between the ACA and Kaplan also extends to athlete support Scholarships where course fees will be discounted.
“Kaplan is extremely proud to partner with the Australian Cricketers’ Association,” said Rob Regan Managing Director at Kaplan Australia.
“We believe formal education can assist cricketers to broaden their horizons and provide a meaningful and positive endeavour to focus their time and energy away from the game, while planning ahead for the next stage of their career.”
“Kaplan has been working with other sporting organisations for a number of years now. We are committed to supporting professional athletes to achieve their education goals, so we are excited to develop a long-lasting and successful relationship with the Australian Cricketers’ Association.”
