Work Experience Case Studies


Daryl Mitchell Features as Guest Sport Presenter on BBC Hereford and Worcester

On Tuesday 20 March 2012 WCCC Captain, Daryl Mitchell, visited BBC Hereford and Worcester for an afternoon’s work experience as a guest presenter. Daryl read the afternoon Sports Bulletins at 4.30pm and 5.30pm and chatted live on the Drive Show about his role as WCCC Captain, the squad’s winter training and his hopes for the coming season.

This work experience opportunity formed part of the WCCC professional players’ PCA Personal DevelopmentWinter Programme. The programme helps players gain work experience and develop key skills alongside their cricket commitments, in order to better prepare for a life after cricket. The day also saw 17 other WCCC players and the Director of Cricket, Steve Rhodes, get out and about across ten WCCC sponsors to experience the world of work. Many thanks to Cotswold Group, Allpay, Marten’s PLC, King’s School, ID Sports, OGL Computer Services LTD, Worcester New, PT Marc Scriven and Rock Lobster for their support with this initiative. 

When asked how he found the experience, Daryl said, “I’ve had a really great afternoon, and learnt so much.” Andrew and Dave Bradley were impressed with Daryl, saying they would happily welcome him back to gain some more experience.
