Q. You’ve just got a new job within rugby. Can you tell us more?
A. Yes, I am now a rugby coach with Dallaglio Rugby Works
Q. Can you tell us about the company?
A. It’s a charity that uses rugby as a basis to help children between 14-16 yrs old who have been excluded from mainstream education, to embrace the values of rugby such as respect, team-working, decision making. This invariably raises their confidence levels and self-esteem, ultimately to assist them into full time employment.
Q. Is there any way club members could assist you?
A. Yes. We are looking to build a network of businesses who would host events showing how their business works and also for work placement opportunities. These teenagers who experience the work environment on 4 occasions or more, during this engagement with us, are 30% more likely to find full time employment.
