EBP Scrolling Photos 004

EBP’s aim is to give pupils an early introduction into the world of work, to give them useful experiences with which they can begin to understand the skills needed for their future.

Our activities will inspire and motivate pupils and support teachers both with the curriculum and ongoing professional development.

Our core programme of activities is detailed below, however we relish the opportunity to work with you on bespoke work related activities so please do contact us if we can help make a difference.

Junior Newbury Building Society
Junior Newbury Building Society"We are proud to be involved with the EBP and the JNBS initiative, as we feel it gives young children an insight into the value of money and give them responsibilities they didn't necessarily have before." Ella Bright, Newbury Building Society
An initiative to encourage children aged 7-11 to save from a young age by offering them the facility to pay money in through their school. It gives pupils a sense of responsibility - Year 6 pupils will run the Newbury Junior Building Society branch in their school and will apply for a cashier role, they attend an interview and a training day. It also offers an insight into working with money, working as part of a team as well as giving them more confidence.
