I don't know if you saw it but our 'Just the Job' programme hit the headlines...

Bankside Pirmary School children visited Middleton Railway as part of the programme and appeared in the Yorkshire Evening Post. The 'Just the Job' programme has enabled 650 children from 15 inner city primary schools to visit a range of companies and take part is a series of classroom activities. It involved 90 visits with 45 different companies over the six weeks following the Year Six SATs. Mike Cooper and his colleagues have worked incredibly hard to continue this brilliant programme despite Yorkshire Bank deciding not to fund it this year. The schools I visit tell me that this is a fantastic programme which we must continue to support and fund.

Thank you Mike and all the 'Just the Job' team.
