A new and exciting initiative which engages primary school children and introduces them to the changing world of work is being rolled-out across 37 primary schools in Derby.

Our Future Derby is a Derby City Council funded initiative, which is operating throughout seven Wards in the Derby Opportunity Area, this includes: Abbey, Arboretum, Boulton, Chaddesden, Derwent, Normanton and Sinfin. It connects primary school children and teachers with local businesses, helping to reduce the skills gap between education and the world of work.

We need you!

Do you want to make a difference to young people in your community? By becoming an 'Our Future Derby' volunteer, you can help inspire young people to think about what is possible in their future.

Having the opportunity at school to meet a wide range of people doing different jobs is really important, particularly for children from disadvantaged backgrounds who have few successful role models, either at home or in their local communities.  As an 'Our Future Derby' volunteer, you can open children’s eyes to all the possibilities for their futures. Whether you’re a CEO or an Apprentice, you’d be amazed how inspiring your story can be.
