How it works

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

Our Allscott Meads development is so much more than simply new homes. This is an entirely new community and we’re proud of our involvement in that, notably the delivery of the new primary school that opened in September 2023.

We’re already actively engaged with the staff and pupils at Allscott Meads Primary and readily share our work on-site with them. By partnering with 2B Enterprising, who we’ve worked with for the past couple of years on other projects that we’re involved in, we’re able to support the pupils with the knowledge and skills to consider a wide variety of future careers in construction.

Whilst we consider ourselves a well-established local estate agent and we already have great visibility and ‘brand awareness’ from our sales boards, it is important to us that we go further to ensure people understand how we can be of help and recognise our point of difference. We pride ourselves with the support we look to give in the local communities we work within and we are very keen to invest in the next generation.

This is an exciting programme that enables us to give back to the communities we work in, while raising awareness about the wide range of career opportunities that exist in construction. We are keen to increase diversity in our workforce and to encourage more women to consider careers in construction and this programme will help us achieve that. Our team are loving their visits to the schools – they are impressed by the children’s energy and enthusiasm and the intelligent and probing questions they ask about our work. The Bumbles of Honeywood Programme, will also help the children to grow in ambition and confidence, which is a great investment in our future generations.

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.

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 £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.

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.

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 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.

No problem at all! The bilingual educational team will ensure you still feel involved during the workshop.

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 – mo@2benterprising.co.uk 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.

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 their information to info@2benterprising.co.uk

The Bumbles of Honeywood programme is currently available across the UK and we are very open to exploring how the benefits could be expanded further 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. We currently have businesses supporting 15 schools, but you can choose to support any number of schools. Please contact us to discuss further.

The 2B Enterprising team will be hosting 3 workshops 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. Our staff are DBS 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, please do follow us and your chosen schools on all these channels so that you can like and repost and create your own posts. Please refer to our Business Toolkit for more information. 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. Please contact our Marketing & Communications Officer; tracy@2benterprising.co.uk to discuss further.

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 to learn enterprise skills. Please ask them to get in touch via info@2benterprising.co.uk.
