Dream Placement Showcase
Featuring the Personal Journeys to Success of Cumbria's Leading Lights in Business

We were so impressed by the bright young students who participated in our Dream Placement programme.

To celebrate their achievements, we hosted a Dream Placement Showcase Event – featuring the personal journeys to success of Cumbria's leading lights in business.


This invitation-only event featured inspirational local business leaders who shared with the audience their personal journey to success, as well as celebrating the achievements of our 34 young people involved in the Dream Placement programme.

Senior leaders came together from the 14 companies involved in our Dream Placement Initiative for 2014, including Sellafield, National Nuclear Laboratory, GSK, NDA, NMP, BAE, React Engineering, Innovia, Allerdale and Copeland Council, CFM Radio and Iggesund along with their winning students to share with the audience their Dream Placement experiences.

Dream Placement – What is it?

Dream Placement is a fantastic competition aimed at local sixth form students from across Cumbria. Winning students receive a week's "Dream Placement" within a highly successful organisation in Cumbria, shadowing their CEO and their senior teams. This is a chance for local companies to identify and forge on-going relationships with talented individuals, whilst providing students with a better understanding of the breadth of fantastic opportunities available for them here in Cumbria and to give them a really positive view of Cumbria as a potential place to return and work if going off to study. This is also an opportunity for students to learn and gain vital leadership skills that will prepare them for the world of work.

Students from local sixth forms across Cumbria also attended who will be eligible to enter our Dream Placement 2014/2015, as well as other companies that we would like to engage with our 2015 Dream Placements.
