Year 10 pupils at Kelvin Hall School have been making the connection between education and their future happiness after taking part in the Young Enterprise ‘Learn to Earn’ programme.

Volunteers from KC helped to deliver the six-week module which helps pupils understand why their education is the key to their future success, in both work and life.

Understanding the cost of living, budgeting and setting life and career goals were amongst the subjects covered during the module.

Erica Hood, education, employment and training manager at Kelvin Hall, commented:

“Taking part in a project like Learn to Earn is fantastic for our pupils, as it gives them a chance to see things from a different perspective. It shows them how school, and the lessons they learn here, can directly affect their life choices when looking at further education choices, apprenticeships or employment.”

“It has really opened up their eyes and shown them that you have to focus and work hard to achieve everything you want in life.”

Brendon Smurthwaite, KC’s Community Coordinator, added:

“The pupils at Kelvin were very receptive to the module and it will hopefully have given them an insight into what the future can hold if they work hard enough.”

“For our volunteers, it was a great opportunity to share their experience with the next generation and they really enjoyed working with the pupils.”
