BDO, a global accountancy firm, have extended their support for the Club’s flagship apprenticeship scheme in partnership with the Trent Bridge Community Trust.
Eight recruits have been selected to take part in the scheme that seeks to equip them with the skills required to secure a career in sports development.
Now in its fourth year, several participants have gone on to secure employment in sports development.
“The BDO Apprenticeship scheme has proved to be hugely beneficial to our department at a particularly busy time of the year and also to the apprentices who gain invaluable experience to give them a boost at the start of their working life,” said Tracey Francis, the Trent Bridge Community Trust’s Head of Community Sport.
“We are delighted that BDO have extended their support and look forward to delivering a busy programme of events and initiatives with the assistance of our apprentices.”
The apprentices will deliver coaching at schools and roadshows, assist with the delivery of matchday entertainment at Trent Bridge and contribute to wider community schemes including the Ashes Legacy Partnership which will see them play a role in the delivery of major matches.
They delivered 960 coaching hours in 2012 including free to access sessions at all Notts Outlaws Friends Life t20 and Yorkshire Bank 40 matches.
“We have seen the difference that this scheme makes to so many young people and the transformation in attitude and outlook is remarkable.”
