for Christians working in education

Primary pupils broaden their work horizons.

Primary pupils broaden their work horizons.

In the first scheme of its kind in the UK primary pupils have lessons in aiming high at work to broaden their jobs horizons early 

Primary school children are to be linked with supportive communities of volunteers from the world of work who can broaden their jobs horizons and boost their aspirations for the future.

The innovative programme is the first of its kind in the country to work with primary students in this way. An initial pilot is taking place in eight schools in Knowsley, an area chosen because of its good primary schools which service wards of significant deprivation.

Run by the national education charity Future First, the scheme will help each participating school to establish a supportive network of former students and volunteers who will return to the classroom to share their experiences of the working world with current pupils. Building on the charity’s already successful work in more than a thousand secondary schools and colleges across Britain, the programme will help primary schools for the first time to harness the time, talent and resource of their former students.
