Coaching Courses – New Courses Available

Due to RFU changes to the Coaching courses coming into force January 2012 the ARU will not be running any Level One ‘Coaching Children’ coaching courses unless a Garrison location specifically asks for a Level One course. ARU Coaches are normally coaching senior XV sides which will require the Level 2 award.

Therefore all of the Coaching courses planned for 2012 are the prerequisites required for the Level 2 ‘Coaching Senior XV’ courses. The ARU will not be running a Level 2 course this season due to the lack of coaches already possessing the prerequisites required.

Course Dates

Prerequisites courses must be completed prior to attendance on a Level Two ‘Coaching Adult XV’ Course and evidence supplied of coaching an Adult XV.

  • Level 2 Course Dates at Aldershot Stadium:
    • Day One: Wed 27 Feb 13
    • Day Two: Wed 27 Mar 13
    • Day Three: Wed 1 May 13

Course Costs

  • Level 1 Coaching Children – £100
  • Level 2 Coaching Adults – £138
  • IRB Rugby Ready – £15.50
  • RFU CPD Courses – £18.50
  • If required you can claim back 80% of the costs involved by using your Standard Learning Credits (SLC). This must be done prior to the course starting to ensure SLC has been authorised by your Education Officer.
