For those who love the game, working as a rugby coach would be a dream job. The route to a career in this field is through the range of training courses offered by the RFU. They offer the following rugby coach courses:

  • Level 1-3 Coaching Qualifications

For those wishing to work as a rugby coach, the important ones are the Levels 1, 2, & 3 coaching qualifications:
  • Level 1 Certificate
    This is offered as either a two day course or an induction evening followed by two days. It is practical based, providing opportunities to coach and develop your skills throughout the course.

    The minimum age for this course is 16, and it recommended that you have previously attended either a Start or Tag-Rugby Course.

  • Level 2 Certificate
    A four day course, mostly practical based, but there are also home study tasks involving the planning, delivery and review of coaching sessions. The minimum age for this course is 18, and in addition to having attended a Level 1 Course, students must be able to show involvement with coaching and attendance at coaching seminars, courses or conferences.

    Assessment is competency based, and candidates should also fulfil the home-study tasks. There is also an open book multiple-choice test.

  • Level 3 Certificate
    This higher level course has 5 modules, 3 of which are delivered face-face, and two as home study. The course typically takes between 9 months and a year and is a combination of practical and classroom based activities.
