EMERGING COACHES COURSE (WORLD RUGBY LEVEL 3)

The Emerging Coaches Course is run by the Australian Rugby Union. The program is run every second year with the next one being held in 2018. The Emerging Coaches Course enables coaches who have already held ARU Level 2 accreditation to gain a higher level of accreditation and education, and ultimately coaches can gain their World Rugby Level 3 accreditation through the Emerging Coaches Course. On the ARU’s hierarchy of accreditation, this course sits between the ARU Level 2 and ARU Level 3 programs, and in future all coaches wishing to gain their ARU Level 3 (Performance Coaching course) will need to go through this program.
The ECC involves 2 weekends of face to face courses, and one at the end of the season facilitated by the ARU and World Rugby staff. The program also consists of a number of online courses, and coaches are also expected to attend a player development program so that they can be filmed actively coaching.

WORLD RUGBY LEVEL 3 ACCREDITATION

To gain World Rugby Level 3 accreditation coaches will need to;

  • Complete the Emerging Coaches Course weekend (start of season)
  • Complete the ARU/World Rugby Emerging Coaches weekend (end of season)
  • Complete all relevant World Rugby online exams
  • Complete a Self-Reflection form
  • Complete 60 hours of session plans in a Coaching Diary

PERFORMANCE COACHES COURSE (ARU LEVEL 3)

The Performance Coaches Course (ARU Level 3 course) is run by the Australian Rugby Union. Interested and eligible coaches send an expression of interest to the NTRU, and their application must be supported by the NTRU, before the application is forwarded on to the Australian Rugby Union. The ARU Level 3 course is the highest level of accreditation a rugby coach can achieve in Australia. The program is usually run on an annual basis, and coaches from across the country apply, so selection is by no means guaranteed, and spaces are limited.
The PCC involves 2 weekends of face to face courses facilitated at the start and end of the season by the Australian Rugby Union. The program also consists of a number of online courses as well as a number of assignments throughout the year. Coaches should be coaching at a high level of the game in Australia.

ARU LEVEL 3 ACCREDITATION

To gain ARU Level 3 accreditation coaches will need to;

  • Complete both ARU face to face weekends, usually held in Sydney.
  • Complete all relevant online assignments and exams as directed by ARU

To register your interest for the Performance Coaches Course, you will need to login to the ARU Learning Centre which can be found at the following link – https://rugby.force.com/rugbyportal//
