BUSINESS development staff at Barnsley College visited a primary school to teach children about a variety of careers they can pursue as they get older.

They were part of a role play village, based at Outwood Academy Primary Park Hill School in Wakefield, which teaches the youngsters of careers they can enter.

Luke McNamara, vice principal of the school, said: “Our staff were blown away by the buzz around the academy and commented on how well the children engaged with each workshop.

“When speaking to children in all the classrooms, the majority of them commented on enjoying learning new skills ‘like adults’ in our role play working village.

“We are passionate about raising the aspirations of our pupils both academically and through exposure to an array of life experiences that will shape their future career paths.

“It is never too early to shift the mindset of historically low-income families to create a brighter future for our pupils.”
