Pupils to learn ABC of work from D2N2

One of the youngest employees working at the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership will be giving schoolchildren a glimpse into the world of work.

Business Admin Apprentice Hannah Gamble, 21, joined D2N2’s offices at the NG2 Business Park in Nottingham, in May 2014. She helps the Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) – a collaboration between business, local authorities, and skills and training providers – promote economic growth and jobs creation across Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

On Thursday June 18 Hannah will be at the East Midlands Chamber offices in Derby, talking to 40 children, aged nine to ten, from Derby’s Firs Estate Primary School, about what it is like to work at the LEP offices. Her two sessions are part of an initiative called ‘Just imagine.. working here!’, linking local Derby and Derbyshire businesses with primary schools.

The project has been set-up by Derby City Council to help children learn about work and begin thinking about what they might like to do as a career when they ‘grow up’.

As with representatives of other employers taking part in the scheme, Hannah will tell the children what she and her organisation do, organise some work role playing and ask the pupils to come up with things they’d like the LEP to tackle.

Hannah said: “I’m really looking forward to it. I’m sure the children will be interested in what we do and maybe come up with a lot of fun ideas of things they’d like us to deal with in their neighbourhoods.”

The D2N2 LEP is committed to both jobs creation in its area, and creating stronger links between businesses and education providers. To learn more see the D2N2 Skills for Growth Strategy 2013-2015 at www.d2n2lep.org/write/D2N2_Skills_For_Growth_Strategy_29th_Oct_2014_.pdf
