WHAT DO OUR LEARNERS SAY...
“The best part of the academy is just playing, week in, week out. I mean you’ve got to also do the work obviously but I don’t think you could make it any more fun than the tutors do. The facilities here are also amazing as it is a professional club and being around the 1st team is also great! They don’t separate themselves off and they’ve even given us a few tips and pointers for our games. If you love rugby and want to further your education then I cannot think of anywhere better to be”.
"I really enjoy coming here, I don’t know of anyone within both years who doesn’t like it, the tutors are enthusiastic and easy going, and as a team we all gelled together within the first few days of starting in September, which was great. We’ve also had a lot of opportunities for enriching trips out, including training at the beach, rock- climbing and even paint balling”.

SRD ACADEMY MANAGER
“Our Academy is at the pinnacle of player development within Salford Red Devils. The academy offers the opportunity to train in world class facilities with highly qualified coaches - who are themselves currently involved in the England Rugby League setup, and to compete representing a professional super league club. The ability to gain a first class education whilst training full-time in an environment such as this is a unique offer that cannot be matched by a standard college”.
