The Player Development Programme (PDP) is co funded by the RPA and our industry stakeholders, PRL & RFU.

The main priority is to individually support and guide our members in their personal and professional development. The programme works with players during and after their careers and aims to provide individuals with the opportunity to fulfil their potential allowing them to make a successful transition to a new career following retirement from the game.

The RPA has eight Player Development Managers (PDMs) who deliver the Player Development Programme to all Aviva Premiership Clubs, England Sevens, England Women and the most recently relegated Premiership club.
