Nicola Myers, Owner of The fruit & veg box company

For the last year, Nicola has been volunteering with the Primary Business Partnership on the newly launched SkillsBlox programme.   This initiative has been developed to ensure primary pupils across West Cumbria get the opportunity to meet positive role models from local businesses and develop key skills that they need to be successful in the future.Each school taking part is allocated a SkillsBlox Advisor to help deliver some of the activities and find local volunteers to bring into the school.  St Matthew’s CofE primary at Westnewton was supported by the wonderful Nicola Myers, local entrepreneur and owner of the Fruit and Veg Box Company.  Nicola, with support from the PBP team found volunteers from Cumbria Fire and Rescue, Cumbria Constabulary, Safety Assessment Federation Limited, Fairydust Emporium, Programme Project Partners (PPP), West Cumbria Rivers Trust, KAEFER and a ski instructor.

“The Careers Week worked really well for our pupils as they were able to ask lots of questions and find out more about the range of jobs in the local area. It was also great to see some of the stereotypes challenged for example, female fire fighters as well as males.”

Radioactive Waste Management (RWM) and the University of Sheffield.

The sessions were delivered in partnership with Radioactive Waste Management (RWM), the University of Sheffield and the Primary Business Partnership at the Centre for Leadership Performance.  Tracy Badham from RWM and James Mansfield from the University of Sheffield delivered a series of sessions teaching students about nuclear energy and nuclear waste; exploring how their electricity is made, the waste that comes from some electricity generation mechanisms and the effect that (nuclear) waste may have on their local environment.
A group of 43 children from St Gregory’s Primary School Workington and Our Lady and St Patrick’s Primary School in Maryport took part in the interactive learning session.

Laal Collective, arts organisation.

Primary Business Partnership work closely with schools to broker links between schools and local businesses to support career related learning so were thrilled when we were asked by Maryport cluster of primary schools to support them with a creative project. Primary Business Partnership approached Laal Collective, a new arts organisation set up by Ali McCaw, Vicki Maxfield and Lizzie Clapham to help the school cluster to create a project that would bring all the schools together after COVID forced schools to work in isolation.
