United Learning Launches Rugby Pilot in Collaboration with the RFU

This year, United Learning, in collaboration with the Rugby Football Union (RFU), has launched an exciting pilot programme across 14 of our secondary academies to enhance the coordination and delivery of rugby union activities and ultimately encourage more young people into the sport. Driving the initiative are United Learning’s newly appointed Rugby Union Specialists, James Wright and Alex Wilson, who are respectively working with academies in the North West of England and along the South coast.

As the new academic year gets underway, we spoke to James and Alex who told us how they hope to benefit students and staff through their role and why it’s so important – now more than ever – that we encourage our young people into grassroots sport.
