…………….A huge thank you for taking part in the Primary Futures event at Mayflower Primary School yesterday. The feedback from the school has been amazing and Head Teacher, Dee Bleach has said how positive all of the teachers and children have been about the experience.
Now that you have had a taster of what Primary Futures can offer young people, we urge you to spread the word and encourage colleagues, friends, relatives, neighbours etc to volunteer an hour a year. Simply send them this link to primary Futures and the on-line registration http://www.inspiringthefuture.org/primary-futures/ And of course and if you haven’t signed up yourself please do so if you want to take part again. Here is a one minute clip explain how the online match making service works – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vqOWqK7TmTY

Apprenticeship project with the Skills Funding Agency – In the near future we are running a project with the Skills Funding Agency across the South East and East of England delivering apprenticeship awareness events in schools with young people aged 16-19 years old. We would really welcome you and your colleagues involvement in these events. Please let us know if you are interested so we can send you more information.
We would love to get your feedback on the apprentices and Primary Futures day at Mayflower Primary School so please feel free to send us a few lines describing how you found the experience and talking to the children so we can add your comments to our blog.
