Primary Futures – Talk about your job with primary pupils to change young lives
Primary Futures is a new free resource for state primary schools that brings literacy and numeracy to life, broadens horizons for school children and links their learning to their futures. Volunteers pledge one hour a year to visit a school near home or work to talk about their job or profession. The programme is open to everyone, whatever their career stage or occupation – from architects to zoologists, from Apprentices to CEOs.
Primary Futures is part of the successful Inspiring the Future programme originally for secondary schools which has 16,900 volunteers across the country. It has been developed by the National Association of Headteachers in partnership with the Education and Employers Taskforce charity.
