In this episode we hear from Lawrence Dallaglio, Former Rugby World Champion and Founder of Dallaglio Rugby Works on his thoughts on mainstream education and how his charity could be an important part in helping the next generations.

“You are what you’re exposed to in life, that’s what my mother used to teach me. The more good, positive things you can be exposed to, the more opportunities you can create for young people, the better their journey and their path might be through their education.”

“I'm a firm believer that you arrive in this world with nothing, and you leave with nothing. But you can make an impact if you're in the bit in between in lots of different ways.”

“I think once you've taken something, you should get it and pass it on.”
