Primary Schools – World of Work Activity

Three providers are running world of work activities in Norwich primary schools this term and planning activities for next academic year. These include full day enterprise challenge days, half day sessions that aim to bring the curriculum to life and short sessions that showcase different types of careers. We are looking for people of all backgrounds, careers and abilities to volunteer their time. You could support these activities by talking about the job you do and increase children’s awareness of different types of careers, build enthusiasm and inspire them! Careers activities with primary aged students may seem unnecessary or premature, but evidence shows us that children will start to narrow their career aspirations at ages 7-11 based on who they know and the role models around them. Contact Form The Future via their website to volunteer your time for any of the below activities and they will support you with what to expect and provide more details.
