How much will The Bumbles of Honeywood programme cost and what does it include?
The programme costs £1148 + 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 lead fun, engaging and exciting enterprise skills sessions with pupils.
How do we choose a school to partner with?
You may wish to choose a school that is located in close proximity to your business or 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. We have a list of schools interested in joining the programme so please contact us to discuss further.
What happens when we’ve selected a school/s?
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.
How many people can attend the sessions from our company?
We would recommend a maximum of two people attend from the company, its also a great idea to send employees from different job functions so the children get to hear about a range of career opportunities available in your sector.
We would like to support a Welsh school but can’t speak Welsh, is this a problem?
No problem at all! The bilingual educational team will ensure you still feel involved during the workshop.
What happens if we can’t make the visit?
We understand it is not always possible to attend an activity, but we do encourage you to make every effort to do so. This is where you, your business and the children will get the most benefit out of the partnership, as you will be able to give them valuable insight into the world of work. If you always plan to send two people, then fingers crossed you will always have at least one attendee at each session. Please inform our Operations Manager via email – firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re unable to make the session or if you’ll be sending someone else in your place. The activity will still go ahead as planned.
How else can we support the primary school?
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.
Can I nominate a primary school that might benefit from The Bumbles of Honeywood program?
Yes! We would welcome introductions to primary schools who you think would benefit. Please email their information to email@example.com
