Spectrum To Expand Work Experience Programme

Bristol Rugby Community Foundation’s Spectrum Project has announced an expansion of its work experience programme, which will see placements for three additional young people ahead of the next academic year.

In the wake of current volunteer, Nino Genua being shortlisting for the Premiership Rugby Volunteer of the Year Parliamentary Award, Spectrum Project has seen its innovative Work Experience Programme – WEX – grow for the new academic year, starting in September 2016.

Nino, 17 from Warmley Park School, will be joined by three more of the school’s Sixth Form pupils on a weekly work experience placement with the Community Foundation.

Spectrum programme manager, Kris Tavender said: “It is fantastic to be continuing our strong partnership with Warmley Park School, using the community connectivity of Bristol Sport and the drive of these fantastic young people to provide truly meaningful work experience opportunities.”

The group will get to work when the new academic year kicks off in September, assisting existing Foundation provision, providing sports sessions to local primary and specialist schools, and making themselves useful around Ashton Gate Stadium.
