College Academy

Over the last couple of years SRDF have been delivering a L2 and L3 education offer as part of provision for 14+ year olds.

This was grown to include a specific offer for budding young rugby players as part of our player development pathways.

The Foundation now operates classes for those in the 1st and 2nd year of their college age education with a focus on the Level 3 Extended Diploma. Going forward for 2017/18, SRDF will continue running a Tier 3 Academy team in the NW College league as part of our Rising Stars Player Development programme. The college team currently sit top of the league with 2 games to go at time of print.

In 2016 as well as delivering L2 Sports BTEC to  pupils from Albion Academy we also became an approved provider through Salford City Council to be able to supply alternate provision to Salford schools.
