We receive numerous requests from both school children and university students wishing to gain valuable experience with us.
The RFU has revised its work experience programme and from 2019 will be introducing a 1-day ‘World of Work’ experience for local schools in Hounslow and Richmond that are members of the RFU Education Partnership.
The RFU Education Partnership is part of the RFU’s wider community relations programme and provides real benefit for schools in the local Twickenham community. The partnership involves 19 primary and five senior schools from the Boroughs of Richmond upon Thames and Hounslow.
Senior Schools in the RFU Education Partnership:
- Orleans Park School (comprehensive 11-16)
- Waldegrave School for Girls (comprehensive 11-16)
- The Heathland School (comprehensive 11-16)
- Gumley House RC Convent School (comprehensive 11-16)
- St Richard Reynolds Catholic College (comprehensive 4-18)
For pupils who do not attend the aforementioned schools, you may wish to contact your local professional club or alternatively get in touch with your local community rugby club. To find your nearest club type your post code into the club finder box at the top of this page and use the contact information provided.
The RFU does not have a placement scheme for university students.
