Schools & Colleges
The Better Learners Better Workers Programme is working with a growing number of schools and colleges across Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield. The programme is developing industry-led project-based learning within the curriculum and is supporting teacher training and enrichment activities for young people.
Students are selected to become Better Learners, Better Workers Ambassadors through an interview process, before enrolling onto a high quality ‘ World of Work’ programme within one of our sectors. School and colleges can select which sector strand(s) they wish to offer within their curriculum and will receive support from a Business Champion from an organisation within the industry.
With support from the Business Champion, Ambassadors develop the key skills needed to succeed at school but also in their future education and careers. Skills are recorded and presented in a Skills Passport which is awarded on completion of the programme at our annual Passport Awards Ceremony at the prestigious Cutlers’ Hall.
