This course runs as part of the Birmingham Moseley Rugby Academy which enables learners to gain a vocational sport qualification alongside full time rugby coaching. As part of the rugby programme learners will be able to receive 6 hours of rugby coaching per week from highly experienced coaches, and have the opportunity to take part in regional and national competitions. Through a strong link with Birmingham Moseley Rugby Club, players will be able gain an experience of working within a professional rugby club.

The OCR Level 2 Technical Diploma aims to provide learners with an introduction to a number of roles through an engagement with physical education and sport including teaching, activity leadership and coaching for young people.
