The course has been developed by the RFU in partnership with the Ashridge Sport and Business Initiative to develop and support a generation of dynamic and inspirational leaders for the game. It is aimed at those leading rugby programmes in clubs, schools, colleges and universities.
The course will develop leadership and management themes, but set them firmly in an applied rugby context. It will be delivered over four days, taking in four modules. Modules will be delivered in two sets of consecutive days, with residential accommodation provided within the cost. Over dinner at each overnight stay, there will be chance to listen to and question an experienced Director of Rugby to develop further your learning. It is envisaged that each cohort will become an ongoing Community of Learning, sharing practice and experience for years to come and the RFU intends to help facilitate this.
