How it works

The Bumbles of Honeywood programme creates meaningful partnerships between education and business with the intention of inspiring young minds and supporting the development of key life skills to help them reach their full potential.

We are thrilled to be partnering with 2B Enterprising to bring a range of innovative educational materials to children in our local community. Danygraig Primary School is one of our closest neighbours at Sancta Maria and we are excited to be part of their learning journey.

Our Mumbles office has been a mainstay in the Village for many years and we do everything we can to support the local community, so when we were approached to help Oystermouth Primary School deliver this excellent scheme, it was an easy decision to make. I am passionate about education and the development of students, continued Charlotte, and the Bumbles of Honeywood enables the children to learn vital skills such as teamwork and communication in a fun environment.

When we learnt about 2B Enterprising’s The Bumbles of Honeywood programme we saw that it offered a unique way to nurture some of the skills that have been so important to us in sport and in business – the ability to lead, collaborate, be resilient and determined, and to solve problems. We decided to help support enterprise education by partnering with four schools, and we each look forward to visiting to talk to the children about the important skills they need for their future.

Business Benefits
Business Benefits

How does my business benefit?

Your business will benefit from that warm fuzzy buzzy feeling of supporting your community with valuable resources to raise the aspirations and skills of our future generations.

Our programme provides the perfect vehicle for employees to volunteer as ambassadors of your company who can visit the school/s you partner with.
Your business will be named on our website and featured on our social media channels – giving you the opportunity to share your great work and celebrate the social value of your business. Schools are also very active in sharing news of partnerships and fun activities on their social media.

Your business will also benefit from the additional publicity associated with The Bumbles of Honeywood programme. Teachers, parents and siblings – as well as the young people – will be made aware of your brand and the positive impact you’re making in your community.

The resources you support could reach hundreds of young people – giving us an incredible opportunity to make a significant collective contribution to the lives of thousands of young people across the UK.

Frequently asked questions

The programme costs £987+vat per primary school for a 12 month engagement. This includes a set of books, over 120 digital resources and a hive of goodies for both teacher and up to 30 pupils. The annual fee includes 3 activity sessions designed to introduce teachers to the programme and also deliver of fun, engaging and exciting enterprise skills sessions with pupils.

You may wish to choose a school that is located in close proximity to your business or you may wish to offer clients/employees the option of voting for a school that is important to them. As long as the primary school is not already being supported by another business and is interested in receiving the programme, we can work with them.

As soon as you’ve selected a school, we make contact with the Headteacher to introduce the programme (if they are not already familiar with us) and let them know they’ve been successful in securing a partner. We then book their first activity session which is an opportunity for us to give the teachers insight into the programme and introduce you and your business.

We would recommend a maximum of 2 people attend from the company.

No problem at all! The bilingual delivery team will ensure you still feel involved and will undertake any translation necessary during the session.

We understand it is not always possible to attend an activity. Please inform our Operations Manager via email – mo@2benterprising.co.uk if you’re unable to make it or if you’ll be sending someone else in your place. The activity will still go ahead as planned.

The partnerships created are unique and we have seen a number of primary schools visit partner sites to see operations first hand or heard of company representatives being invited to primary schools to ‘judge’ competitions. They’ve also gone on to sponsor sports teams or plant trees. We encourage you to do whatever you can to maximise the relationship and make it as unique as the young people you are supporting.

Yes! We would welcome introductions to primary schools who you think would benefit. Please email information to info@2benterprising.co.uk

The Bumbles of Honeywood programme is currently available across the UK but we are very open to exploring how the benefits could be expanded geographically. Please get in touch if you are interested in widening access.

Yes. We welcome businesses choosing more than one school to broaden the benefits of their support and positively impacting more young lives.

The 2B Enterprising team commit to delivering 3 sessions per annum and we would like a representative from your organisation to also join. Each session lasts approx. 45mins – 1 hour, however, there is no expectation to attend each session. We will always ensure your partner school knows who has supported them. If you wish to offer additional benefits i.e. school visits, we’d very much encourage you to do so.

There is no expectation to do anything other than be present and introduce yourself to the teachers/pupils. It would be great if you could also introduce the business and share insight into the roles and skills that are needed to work in your industry. The young people also love for visitors to get involved in the activity… but we promise not to make anyone wear the Betty Bumble costume (unless they REALLY want to).

Every school is different so it’s important to approach every visit with an open mind. Some schools still maintain quite strict regulations to minimise spread of viruses so we encourage visitors to take lateral flow tests and/or not attend if they are feeling poorly. Bring masks with you, antibacterial gel and maintain social distancing where possible. Our staff are CRB checked and there will always be a member of staff present in the room during the delivery sessions. Photography may be limited and photographs will need to be approved by staff prior to publishing. Rest assured our staff will brief you in advance of any visit to a school and if you have any questions at any point – please contact info@2benterprising.co.uk or call 01792 277694.

We have a number of social media channels that are used by both primary schools and ourselves to share the great work being done through The Bumbles of Honeywood programme. Depending on the level of support you commit to, we can offer opportunities for specialist PR and invitations to events to maximise exposure of your involvement.

Yes! We would very much welcome introductions to businesses who have a similar ethos to ourselves and our existing partners. We want to work with organisations who are committed to making a change and supporting young people with opportunities that usually only present themselves later in life. Please tell them to get in touch via info@2benterprising.co.uk.
