For those wishing to work as a rugby coach, the important ones are the Levels 1, 2, & 3 coaching qualifications. In a field such as this you may need to be creative when looking for a job. However, there are a whole range of prospective employers:

  • Local authorities
  • Schools
  • Colleges and universities
  • Sports councils
  • Sports national governing bodies
  • Private sports clubs
