Learning to Work Programme

The programme is designed to provide primary schools with high quality early career related learning and personal development support.

Using interactive games and activities, the experienced team work hard at perfecting the sessions to complement the KS2 curriculum.

What is involved in the Learning to Work programme?

The programme is split into five sessions which run across five half-days, each designed to give young people an opportunity to learn about themselves and explore opportunities available for them when they leave school.

The impact of the Learning to Work Programme

The programme has supported children across the Borough and helped them to identify their own skills and strengths and connect them with local businesspeople to show them what types of jobs they can do when they grow up.

With an endless amount of positive feedback from students and teachers over the current academic year, we want to continue to support the next generation by encouraging them to dream big.

The programme aims to encourage curiosity, boost self-confidence and positively change the perceptions pupils may have about themselves by making them realise their own potential.

Hear what pupils had to say:

“I have learnt that my career starts today.”

“I have learnt more about the salaries people get depending on their job. It got me thinking about jobs.”

“I have discovered that I work good in a team and that I never give up when something goes wrong.”

“I have discovered that I can be anything I want if I put my mind to it.”

Hear what the teachers had to say:

“The content is pertinent and engaging, and the children have enjoyed learning about topics they wouldn’t usually.” St Peters CE Primary

“Amazing session. Inspiring, informative, and interactive.” Holy Cross RC Primary

“Following the session, we noticed a real difference in the children’s attitude to their work as it seems to have made them realise that there is a purpose to their leaning and how it can impact their later lives and future careers.” Winwick Primary
