As part of their Rugby Youth Partnership, Youth Sport Trust are hosting an array of programmes, activities and resources designed to engage school children across the country with Rugby World Cup 2015.
Rugby World Cup 2015 Young Person Programme
The Youth Sport Trust have joined forces with Rugby World Cup 2015 and the Rugby Football Union (RFU) to develop an exciting programme to engage young people in the tournament and have developed the following five strands of work:
•School Collateral Pack
A resource pack centred on the RFU's core values is being designed by teachers for teachers. This resource will be an online tool for teachers to discover new ways of using rugby and Rugby World Cup 2015 to inspire lesson plans, enrichment time, extra- curricular activities and whole school achievement.
The resource pack will be launched in the summer term - sign up for updates and further news.
•England Rugby Teaching Resource
A resource centred on the RFU's core values has being designed by teachers for teachers over the past 12 months. The resource is an online tool for teachers to discover new ways of using rugby and Rugby World Cup 2015 to inspire lesson plans, enrichment time, extra- curricular activities and whole school achievement.
Any school can use the resources - just sign up here.
•School Rugby Ambassadors
This programme will develop young leaders in secondary schools across the country to become School Rugby Ambassadors for Rugby World Cup 2015 (RWC 2015). These young people will use their excellent leadership and communication skills to inform and excite peers about rugby and Rugby World Cup 2015 through events, assemblies, competitions, and whole school engagement within their own school and surrounding primary schools.
•Team Welcome Ceremonies
Each competing nation will receive a welcome ceremony when they arrive in England. Schools in England and Wales are invited to apply to perform.
•Young Rugby Ambassadors
The RFU are working with selected rugby clubs to recruit 4 Young Rugby Ambassadors, aged between 16-20, who as part of the RFU's lead up and legacy plan will fulfill the following roles within their club and community:
-Communicate the latest news on RWC 2015 by arranging meetings, briefings and social events in their club.
-Cultural Engagement- excite and involve the community in rugby, its values and get people talking about what rugby means to them.
-Bring back 16-24 year old players who have left the game and reengage them with rugby.
