Professionals* from across The Education People have come together to produce a six-week programme specifically for Key Stage 2 pupils, which can be delivered from October 2021.
The programme is delivered direct to Year 5 pupils in schools by a team of The Education People’s primary education and skills & employability practitioners, bringing in a wealth of expertise in the form of Employer Encounters.
This six-week programme involves challenging stereotypes, looking at different career paths and exploring choices for when the pupils become adults.
This programme has been designed to be inspirational and raise aspirations for young people, so they understand the relevance of working hard and being resilient so to achieve great things in their lives.
There is an added homework section so that learning is consolidated further and an optional Children’s University element. The Children’s University element allows children to earn Learning Credits for taking part in a Skills and Employability Challenge. If the school were to join Children’s University at a later date, this Learning Credits would be transferred to a real Passport to Learning.
