Bright stars has really lived up to its name. We have developed a school full of Bright Stars who have gained so much knowledge about the world of work and how to run a company. The competition has given our children so many opportunities, beyond what we anticipated. Thank you…read more

I went into Dream Placement looking for leadership opportunities and an insight into working in politics. I found both during my week in the office of Copeland MP Trudy Harrison and her constituency team. I was surprised at the office environment – so friendly but so hard working on behalf of the constituents. I accompanied Trudy on a visit to Furness General Hospital where I also met newly-elected Barrow-in-Furness MP Simon Fell.

I really enjoyed the atmosphere and felt very much like one of the team. I’d never had an experience like this before – I had done straightforward work experience but my Dream Placement was quite different.

First off, it was amazing that experience was even available in terms of the lockdown, it was also a great opportunity to meet new people outside of your own school and work with new people who you may not necessarily choose to work with previously as you may not know them well. The project is also quite independent as well so students aren’t completely controlled by guidelines that teachers have set and so they must cover them. I would recommend the ProjX work awareness programme to other students as it opens your eyes to all the different jobs that are required for one project to work and how varied those jobs are. Also, working on the project in teams offers a different experience to what you might do in school as you only focused on one thing and you can develop many skills by working in a team for two weeks, such as knowing when to step up when others can’t.

I have been involved with Bright Stars since its inception – first as a head teacher and then as
chair of the judging panel for the last two years. I have seen the scheme grow and also been able
to appreciate the tremendous value it offers to the children involved, to teachers and to the
companies supporting them.
Bright Stars enables the children to use a range of skills they learn in the classroom in a real
world scenario, working alongside adults from local businesses to broaden their experience and
knowledge.
A key element in Bright Stars is collaboration and the children are able to take on different roles
including leadership roles, which provide an excellent foundation for their future development,
building confidence in their own abilities, and their aspirations for the future.
Companies taking part are having a hugely positive impact on these children, and the company
representatives rightly take a great deal of pride in their involvement.

I joined the programme in order to expand my skills in teamwork. Beforehand I always struggled with working with others due to my shy nature. But I believed this programme has helped me in order to improve my teamwork abilities, even over video call. The week involved many presentation with lots of information, and helped me learn about the different jobs that go into designing a building. If a friend was interested in construction and/or engineering, I would reccommend the course since it was a lot of fun and a great way to learn different skills and jobs.
