Inspired Choices Programme

Inspired Choices is a collaborative programme from the Police, Fire and probation services, local authorities, health providers, private organisations, charities and community leaders who are working together to support vulnerable young people.

A £10,000 sponsorship programme for 2019/2020 was provided, which includes mentoring and volunteering time from Willmott Dixon employees including colleagues at the Christ Church School Academy project. Site visits and hands on activities are also provided, and this is an ongoing programme.

The young people are given a site visit and spend the rest of the day carrying out various hand on activities relating to construction. This includes meeting with key professionals learning about their experiences and job roles.

The aim of the educational visits are to provide a wider range of experiences for the pupils than could be provided on the school site or within the classroom. The scheme also promotes the independence of children as learners, giving them confidence and enabling them to grow and develop in new learning environments.
