Our aims

Our primary aim is to provide a coordinated business engagement programme for primary schools across Copeland and Allerdale.

Within the Allerdale and Copeland areas we aim to:

  • increase primary schools' awareness of the business engagement activity already available to them and work to remove the barriers to their participation
  • fill any gaps in the current business engagement offering and increase the number of businesses engaging with their local primary schools
  • increase the knowledge and understanding of each primary school about the businesses that operate in their area
  • make learning more relevant and real world
  • introduce children to the concepts of leadership, teamwork and give them a better understanding of the soft skills needed in business
  • raise the aspiration for primary school children within West Cumbria and contribute towards the creation of skilled young people capable of meeting the region's future needs
  • increase primary schools' ability to support STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) activities
  • support mutually beneficial relationships between schools and businesses
  • encourage engagement from the wider community, particularly with parents.
