Rugby Leaders Gain Awards

Rugby Leaders

Congratulations to our Sixth Form students for completing the 1st4sport Level 2 Award for Leadership Through Rugby Union.  Their certificates were presented to them by Mr Dave Manders, Rugby Development Manager, at St Paul’s Catholic School.

Developed in partnership with the Rugby Football Union (RFU), the 1st4sport Level 2 Award in Leadership Through Rugby Union (QCF) is an exciting qualification which enables young people, aged 14 to 19, to develop leadership skills and engage with grass-roots rugby union and Tag Rugby. By completing this qualification, learners can develop a range of skills in independent enquiry, teamwork, self-management, creative thinking and effective participation.

Learners are introduced into a number of leadership roles, including:

  • leading Tag Rugby activity sessions
  • refereeing Tag Rugby games
  • managing a local small-sided game team
  • contributing to the organisation and delivery of a local Tag Rugby festival/event for young people.

Mr Manders said:  “Our students have worked very hard to gain this award.  It’s a great qualification for them if they want to progress within the voluntary or employed world of sport and sports development, giving them an insight into coaching, refereeing, sports administration and development.”
