• Helping Cumbrian Primary school children to Dream BIG.


Last day of term for Orgill Primary School, Egremont and Bill Miller from Doosan dropped in to deliver his Dream Job workshop.

And what a way to end the term, the children were encouraged to dream BIG, to think about their dream job, tempted by a chocolate tasting role? Maybe sleeping is your thing and you could test out mattresses? Or maybe you’re adrenalin fuelled and a water slide tester is the role for you? These questions got the children thinking and talking about what it is they’d like to do, what are they good at and what do they love doing now. Bill talks about what are the most dangerous jobs in the World, the best jobs, the jobs of the future and the jobs that earn the most money, not only were the children taking notes in this session!

After all the talk about jobs it was time to get down to something practical. It’s Lego time! The children were split into groups and challenged with a variety of design and constructing tasks all set to a timer. Creativity and energy along with team work, communication and problem-solving skills got the challenges off to a good start but it was the design, construction and attention to detail that set the winners apart.

A thoroughly enjoyable session and one that we are now excited to announce FREE training for.

Maybe you’re interested in getting involved with supporting Primary Schools but don’t know how to?

Bill Miller from Doosan has offered to provide training in his very popular Dream Jobs workshop. The workshop has proven to be very popular in schools and so we need to train more volunteers to be able to run this session.

Date: 1st November
Venue: CforLP Offices, Town Hall, Cockermouth
Timings: 13:00 to 15:30
