Access Training is thrilled to announce that we are the new First Team shirt sponsor and principal partner for Rusthall FC’s upcoming campaign. As well as being placed on the front of the First Team home shirts for the campaign, Access Training will be visible around The Jockey Farm Stadium and will be in attendance at headline fixtures.
Jamie Jefferies, Access Training's C.E.O said: "We are delighted to partner with Rusthall FC for the 2022/2023 season. Our exciting new partnership with this much-loved football club is just one of the ways in which Access hopes to contribute to the local community."
Rusthall FC was formed in 1899 when they registered with the Kent County Football Association and entered the Tunbridge Wells Football League. The club turned semi-professional as they gained promotion to The Southern Counties East Premier Division in 2017. The club played their first-ever game in the FA Cup when they were drawn away to CB Hounslow in the extra-preliminary round of the competition in 2017/18 season.
The club continues to strive in the Southern Counties East Football League Premier Division at level 9 in the English Football Pyramid (8 consecutive promotions away from the Premier League) and now has teams at every age group throughout the club at a grassroots level.
Dean Jacquin, Rusthall FC's Chairman said: “Access Training is well-established and is fast-becoming an instantly recognisable brand within the UK. Our partnership with a leading construction based training provider is yet another statement of progress at the club, both on and off the field. We look forward to helping each other secure our respective ambitions.”

At Access Training we strive to deliver first class trade training courses. We have successfully trained hundreds of people who have no previous trade experience to become experts in their chosen fields and equip them with all the skills necessary to enter into the world of trade work. Many of our students aspire to become self-employed and we at access training can help.
Interested in enrolling on a course? Read the Access Training Reviews left by past students below:
Steven Walker – who completed a plumbing course with access training told us that he “had no previous experience of plumbing before” and that he found the course particularly helpful because “the course simulates real life situations” he also went on to say that “being a self-employed plumber is the best job he has ever had”
Students, who attend the courses provided by access training, come from all walks of life. Some or our students, like Anthony Blundell did not have any professional experience when he enrolled on one of our carpentry courses. We asked Anthony about his time spent with Access Training, Anthony replied by saying “I enjoyed the course because it was delivered at the right level” he also mentioned that he hasn't stopped working since he has finished his training course, and that he hasn't had to do any advertising because all of his opportunities are made by recommendation.
Scott Daily also didn't have any professional experience when he enrolled on one of our Electrician courses. After becoming a fully trained electrician he informed us that “[this] course has led to me becoming self-employed as an electrician.” He also added that with his new qualifications he was able to expand his families building and roofing business.
Before Alex Dyer enrolled with us on a gas engineering course, he was already working as a self- employed builder he later told us, “The qualifications I received have opened up new avenues if work for me”.

He covered large areas of England and Wales, so it meant a lot of travelling away from his family. Work was also starting to dry up because of the recession.
“With a wife and two daughters to support I felt it was time to get a trade and find a career where I could almost guarantee myself work wherever I went,” said the 45-year-old, who is originally from Australia.
“After some research I found that electricians were in high demand.”
