Changing Horizons Blackpool – What our volunteers said

Wow, can you believe it’s over 3 months since our first ever Changing Horizons event in Blackpool! Since our last blog we’ve been busy evaluating the event and planning for our next ones… so watch this space! However, we promised to share some of our findings with you and this blog is all about our dedicated team of volunteers!

Learn 2 Earn in Leicestershire

Students of Charnwood College in Loughborough are looking forward to an interesting and varied day. Learn 2 Earn provides students with information about careers to help them make informed decisions and inspire them for life beyond education. Volunteers are needed to help them make the most of the day.

Breaking Down Barriers

In 2010 Dudley HMRC established a local schools engagement programme and in successive years has worked with primary, secondary and special educational needs schools. Civil Service Local attended the celebration event for the latest Breaking Down Barriers project.

Primary Reading Scheme with the Ouseburn Learning Trust

The Primary Reading Scheme, piloted at Benton Park Primary School, has enabled foundation stage learners to read aloud to Civil Service volunteers over weekly sessions and for Nursery stage learners to hear stories read to them. Following the success of the pilot, we have extended the scheme to a further 4 schools involved in the Ouseburn Learning Trust.
