Workers to explain their jobs to Primary School pupils

Primary Futures is a scheme developed by the head teachers' union NAHT which aims to send up to 100,000 people, "from apprentices to chief executives", into schools in England to talk about their jobs.

"It's about raising and broadening horizons," said Russell Hobby, the union's general secretary.

Tonmoy Kumar, Manager of the Accounts Department of ABDS and an active school governor comments:
“A series of pilot programmes have already been run across England with real success. The scheme is an extension of the “Inspiring the Future” programme, set up five years ago by the charity Education and Employers Taskforce to send workplace speakers into secondary schools.  So far 13,500 volunteers are registered to visit three-quarters of secondary schools in England.”

Nick Chambers, the charity's director, said: "Primary Futures grew out of discussions with NAHT about how best employers could support primary schools.

Mr Chambers said the new scheme should make it easier both for schools to access volunteers and for people to volunteer.

The charity wants volunteers to pledge an hour a year to talk to children at a local state school about their jobs, their backgrounds and cultures and the routes they took into their careers.

If you need any help and advice with Free Schools, Academy Schools or Charities, contact Lavinia Newman or Peter Ham now to discuss how ABDS can help bring their experience to these matters.
