Trust Extend PKF Apprenticeship Scheme

Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club’s official team sponsors PKF have extended their support for the Club’s Apprenticeship scheme.

Six 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 whilst two of last year’s intake will return to act as peer mentors.

PKF, who maintain a long-term commitment to the Club as official team sponsors, cover the costs of the scheme by directing a portion of their commitment to the club to community ventures.

“The PKF 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 Sports Trust’s Head of Community Sport.

“We are delighted that PKF have extended their support and look forward to delivering a busy programme of events and initiatives with the assistance of our apprentices.”

The Club’s Community and Development Department has won the best community scheme prize at the ECB Business of Cricket Awards for the past two years for its work in  tackling social exclusion in local communities and a world record breaking cricket tournament attended by 2010 school pupils.
