Birmingham Academy of Rugby
All scholars on the Birmingham Academy of Rugby will enrol on a Programme of Study which is aligned to their Qualifications on Entry. Scholars will have 10-14 hours of Rugby Specific Training and Match play combined with Tutorial, Purposeful Work Experience, Maths* or English* (Subject to QoE) alongside their selected Academic Pathway.
This course develops skills and knowledge by studying a wide range of topics. These will enable the learner to understand key elements and components within the Sport Industry. On this programme, you can develop your knowledge using examples from specifically the Rugby Industry but generally across the Sports Industry. Units that you will study may include:
– Physiology of fitness
– Sport Psychology
– Fitness Testing
– Fitness Training
– Assessing Risks
– Sports Legacy
– Technical and Tactical Demands of Sport
– Practical Sport
– Sports Coaching
– Rules and Regulations in Sport
Scholars may opt to study on an A Level Programme. Scholars can take a suitable A Level Subject Combination e.g. Business, Geography & Science subject to availability, subject location and timetabling. This pathway will require further discussion during an interview prior to an offer of a place on the programme.
Scholars who do not meet the Level 3 Entry requirements can still gain a place on the Rugby Academy but will have to Study a Level 1 or 2 qualification in a College Tutor Group which is not exclusive to the Club Academy.
