Inspiring Minds

The Inspiring Minds programme provides opportunities for employee-volunteers to inspire primary school pupils by linking real life and learning. Activities provided by local employers have been shown to boost confidence, develop creativity and foster a love of learning.

Who is it for?

● Teams of employee-volunteers can volunteer on a one off basis through Day in the Life week or over a series of sessions through Insight into Industry sessions
● Employee-volunteers can volunteer individually through the Right to Read programme

How does it work?

Employee-volunteers bring the world of work to life by challenging young people with real-world problem solving activities and empowering them to succeed.

We run two Day in the Life weeks each academic year where small teams go into school for an hour to give pupils an insight into their roles. Employee-volunteers taking part in Insight into Industry design and deliver sessions challenging pupils to link their learning to the world of work.
