RugbyWorks is an intensive, long-term skills development programme based on the values of rugby, through which we aim to get teenagers outside of mainstream education into sustained education, employment or training.
Each year on average 2,200 young people between the ages of 14-16 are excluded from mainstream education in the UK. That’s 12 exclusions every school day. Excluded children are the most vulnerable; twice as likely to be in the care of the state, four times more likely to have grown up in poverty, seven times more likely to have a special educational need and ten times more likely to suffer recognised mental health problems.
“We’re proud to be supporting Dallaglio RugbyWorks as they work with at-risk teenagers excluded from mainstream education – often this is the first chance they have been given to create a more positive future.”
