World Rugby Training and Education courses

Figure 1: World Rugby competency-based accreditation

World Rugby Training and Education courses have evolved since the mid 1990s, and have been updated regularly since then using the expertise in member Unions and the skills of a select number of World Rugby Trainers who are also ‘content experts’.

Since 2006, the World Rugby provision has extended to serve more stakeholders, as demonstrated in the portfolio above. All courses are now competency-based, designed to provide learning and training appropriate to the contexts in which coaches and officials are active.

In addition, World Rugby courses can now only be delivered by World Rugby licensed Educators who have demonstrated their technical and facilitation skills to prescribed standards. All record keeping and certification is undertaken from World Rugby’s headquarters in Dublin, Ireland.
