Volunteer Training 

Our Future Derby project, fully supported and endorsed by the Chamber, is a new initiative aimed to connect primary school children across Derby with local employers, to help introduce them to the world of work.  

It is supported by Derby City Council and funded through the Department for Education’s Opportunity Areas Programme. 

To find out more about Our Future Derby and how you can sign up to be a volunteer – please click here.

This free-to-attend afternoon training session, organised by fellow project partner Learn by Design, is one of a number being organised to provide business volunteers with the relevant information, guidance and support that will enable them and the young people they are working with, to get the most out of the experience.

The session will include :

  • an overview of the programme aims
  • an insight into how to communicate with primary schoolchildren with interactive tasks and practical demonstrations 
  • school procedures and policies including safeguarding issues
  • overview and demonstration of the Primary Futures portal 
  • sharing of stories, and feel good moments when working in schools 

You will also be able to meet fellow volunteers from other locally based businesses, as well as project partners and stakeholders.
