Primary Futures launches today to widen the horizons and aspirations of primary school children by helping them make the connections between their lessons and their futures. Primary Futures has been developed by school leaders’ union NAHT in partnership with the Education and Employers charity. It is completely free to all state primary schools and is part of the successful Inspiring the Future programme which has already registered 13,500 volunteers and 75% of state secondary schools.
Through Primary Futures http://www.primaryfutures.org primary schools will be able to access a vast network of volunteers from different backgrounds and professions – from young apprentices to chief executives, archaeologists to zoologists or employees from small, medium sized or multi-national companies. Volunteers can register here to visit a local school: http://www.inspiringthefuture.org/
