The opportunity to be involved in the 2015 Rugby World Cup drew a crowd of more than 60 sport and public services students at Keighley Campus.
Staff from the RFU’s (Rugby Football Union – the national governing body for grassroots and elite rugby in England) including Hamish Pratt, Community Rugby Development Officer, along with representatives from Keighley Rugby Club were at the campus to deliver a Young Rugby Ambassador workshop for students interested in becoming Young Rugby Ambassadors in and around their local community for next year’s event.
The work of rugby ambassadors will include gaining valuable experience about rugby development and promotion, having access to “insider” knowledge about the Rugby World Cup 2015, developing exciting projects linked for local clubs and communities while helping to encourage other young people to become involved in rugby.
College Learning Leader Andrew Gudgeon said: “It was a fantastic afternoon and a great opportunity for our students – some who are now planning some great things in the new year about engaging people to play rugby.”
