Wiltshire Skills 4 Success (2013-2014)

Members of the Teaching & Learning Team provided input on supporting the health and wellbeing of children and young people, as part of the training for Buddies from Business. Buddies supported children from years 4, 5 & 6 in school with Reading, Literacy & Numeracy as part of a pilot project during 2013. 

Similar input was also provided for Mentors from Business during 2013 and 2014, who shared their experiences with Year 11 pupils to develop aspiration and provide an insight into the world of work.

The current phase of the Mentors from Business programme supports the develpment of aspiration in STEM careers.
