Platform - Boosting Rugby's Female Capability

The project will provide training to a pool of lead female "Educators & Mentors" in the workforce roles of Coaching, Officiating, and Administration. Participants will be accredited as World Rugby Educator which will enable them to deliver World Rugby approved courses and accreditations. The successful participants will form a State Female panel in each discipline. These panels will meet regularly ( monthly) to network on specific initiatives for increases in the quantity and quality of female coaches, match officials and administrators. These identified and trained female leads will then facilitate female focused accreditation and training courses across the state with the aim to dramatically increase the number of female accredited coaches and match officials and improve the quality of female administrators. This will expand services to affiliates to increase the efficiency in which they increase their female capability.
