Level 1 Sport and Rugby Academy
Commitment to a team ethos and to work practically and physically to achieve success. Applications accepted from anyone (no matter what gender) as long as you are willing to get fitter, smarter and stronger (note — counts as two subject lines).
We will cover both literacy and numeracy elements for Level 1 while looking at courses like first aid, and rugby refereeing/coaching. In total 40 credits are available, 20 at level 1 (literacy and numeracy) and coaching and first aid courses are level 2 and 3.
We will be using rugby as a context for the learning. So whereas another English class might be studying Shakespeare and doing essays, this class will use English in a more real world/practical sense and in a context which is more identifiable: sport. No essays. We will be looking at what rugby greats have said about the game and exploring/testing their theories while putting our English and Mathematics skills to the test in a real-world context like planning rugby tours, organising our own fundraising, testing accelerated progress techniques using ourselves as test subjects. All of this means using Mathematics and English to help achieve our individual and squad goals.
