Our coaching and performance courses were designed in consultation with rugby and football professionals, including the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU), the (FAW), the CardiffBlues, the Ospreys, Gwent Dragons, Cardiff and Swansea City. This means we can give you the right practical, technical and analytical skills for a rewarding career in the industry. Many modules are set in the workplace to give you practical experience of what it takes to succeed at playing and coaching.

You can gain relevant UK Coaching Certificate (UKCC) coaching qualifications and refereeing awards. Another boost to your career potential is the work-based learning we offer at professional clubs, including hands-on coaching, strength and conditioning, analysis posts and fitness testing.
