• Helping Cumbrian Primary school children to Dream BIG.


Aspiration Morning at Thornhill Primary school

CfLP coordinated and facilitated an Aspiration Morning with Key Stage 2 children at Thornhill primary school who are involved in Primary Business Partnership. The session, facilitated by PBP, brought in local employers from a range of sectors who shared their career journeys with the children as part of an interactive ‘guess my job’ session as well as holding interviews and doing some role play.

“We have run lots of these Aspiration sessions as part of PBP and the demand to run more across the 60 schools involved with the pilot is high.” Sarah glass, Brokerage Manager, Primary Business Partnership

It was a pleasure to spend time with the Primary Business Partnership and the students at Thornhill School, they were a pleasure to work with and I hope that they took some inspiration from our visit. I was certainly inspired by the attitude shown by the students and the staff at the school. I look forward to my next visit.” Shaun Stanger, Facilities Manager, Energus

“We had a fantastic morning with the team. The children enjoyed seeing a variety of people from different employment sectors with different stories to tell. It was engaging, fun and thought provoking too.” Head Teacher, Thornhill Primary School

We are working with a network of volunteers to match school requests for business support from days like these to topic support, company visits, reading champions as well as schools using the PBP website to find out what current schemes are available to them both locally and nationally.
