Dallaglio RugbyWorks is an intensive, long-term skills development programme based on rugby, through which we aim to get teenagers outside of mainstream education into sustained education, employment or training.

St Modwen Homes and Caterpillar Support the Dallaglio RugbyWorks Midlands Tournament.

St. Modwen Homes and Caterpillar helped teenagers celebrate the end of the school year with Dallaglio RugbyWorks at the Midlands Summer Rugby Tournament. Ninety students from across the East and West Midlands took the opportunity to showcase their skills and abilities, in a fun day of activities sponsored by the two partners. 

St. Modwen Homes launched a year-long partnership with Dallaglio RugbyWorks in November 2018. The partnership has seen the company host Career Taster Days to give young people an insight into construction and its many career paths. As well as enabling essential workplace experience, the housebuilder has provided funding and match day t-shirts for three rugby tournaments for teenagers in the Midlands. 

Held in the grounds of co-sponsor Caterpillar’s Desford office, the latest tournament on Tuesday 2nd July saw ten schools from across the Midlands competing, with South Wigston ultimately being crowned winners. Caterpillar’s Building Construction Products Division (BCP) in Leicester has a large presence in the East Midlands, a core region for Dallaglio RugbyWorks. Caterpillar joined the team of employability partners in September 2018. Since then, it’s been full steam ahead with the scheduling of over ten Career Taster Days with the attendees being given the opportunity to ask questions about their apprenticeship scheme. Developing this over the coming years will enable more regions to benefit, adding depth and texture to the Career Taster Day portfolio. 

Dave Smith, Managing Director at St. Modwen Homes said, “The work that Dallaglio RugbyWorks does in helping teenagers develop key skills is something we are proud to support, both through the funding of tournaments like these and by helping young people to learn more about careers in construction.

“We’re thrilled to be championing the hardworking students taking part in this year’s Midlands Summer Tournament. Congratulations to the winners and all who took part.”
