We have worked with Inspire2Learn, a local teaching and learning centre funded by schools in Redcar and Cleveland. It is not for profit and any surplus funds are given back to the schools to reduce their costs. The centre runs courses and events specifically in response to local school needs with a particular mission to bring national speakers and events to a local audience.
The Aspiration Fairs that they hold are a great way to inspire Primary school children.
Two hours broken into 20 minute intense ‘workshops’ led by real people from a range of roles in each sector proved to be very effective. iTCHYROBOT have attended a number of these workshops, providing interactive presentations and an understanding of how the subjects children are currently learning can be applied in the world of work.
"Becky from ItchyRobot certainly inspired a whole table of girls that I spoke to, especially one who hadn’t realised that studying art was a desirable part of web design." - Inspire2Learn
