Leadership skills need to nurtured from an early age and over the past ten years CforLP has worked in collaboration with local primary schools across Cumbria to provide leadership opportunities for young people, nurture aspirations, confidence and creativity and link businesses with local schools through a range of high quality programmes.
Primary Business Partnership (PBP)
Funded by One Aim and Sellafield Ltd this FREE signposting and brokerage service matches and connects primary schools and business across Allerdale and Copeland to support career-related learning in the classroom and encourage schools and businesses to forge stronger links.
Programmes for Primary Pupils
Key to our approach is the provision of new opportunities and experiences, to enable young people to see beyond their own circumstances to a better, more prosperous future, and to give them the confidence and self-belief that is such an important part of personal success. Our activities with young people also equip them with the life skills that come with wider experience and interaction with role models beyond their own family and school.
An exciting 8-week social enterprise programme, supported by local businesses, to build campaigning skills in primary school children, nurturing aspirations and entrepreneurship, develop leadership skills and get kids excited about business from a young age.
Programmes for Educators
Do you need help to motivate or upskill your team? We offer a number of development programmes that are relevant to teachers, where they can meet and learn with other local leaders. We can also design a programme tailored to your needs and offer workshops for staff on a range of topics from resilience to coaching skills and provide leadership training for your school or college council.
Get in touch if your school would like to register their interest for any of our programmes or speak to a member of the team. Find out how we can help support your school and how you can support our primary programmes whilst developing your own skills.
