    Doncaster Stories, part of the National Literacy Trust, have a fully funded employability programme they’re delivering in Doncaster. It’s called Words for Work: Dream Big and is a primary programme aimed at Year 1 pupils (aged 5-7) from schools in areas that are vulnerable to low literacy. The programme develops literacy skills, raises aspirations and challenges gender stereotypes. A big part of this is offering pupils an opportunity to visit a local business to give them an insight into the workplace.
     
    Would you be willing/able to host a 1.5 hour visit supported by 5-10 volunteers from your office. We would need a meeting room to seat the 30 children too if you have one that size. A dedicated National Literacy Trust Project Manager will lead the session and give a 30 minute training session for the volunteers on the day too. The training will cover the structure of the session, safeguarding and tips for working with children.
     
    1 hour 15 minutes children at visit which comprises of:
    • 10 minute intro and icebreaker
    • 20 minute tour of the workplace and detective mission
    • 15 minutes careers storytelling activity
    • 20 minutes business bag activity
    • 10 minutes evaluation and plenary
    Please email chris.normington@literacytrust.org.uk if you're able to help!
