Barnsley recruitment agency helps give children a voice

A Barnsley-based recruitment agency is working with a local college to help give its pupils a voice within their community.

Provide Education specialises in placing school staff and supply teachers in more than 500 primary and secondary schools across South and West Yorkshire and the East Midlands. The company is working with Darton College to support its Darton Voice project, which encourages pupils to get more actively involved in their community. Activities include litter picking and running coffee mornings for older people.

The recruitment agency recently presented the college with a cheque for £280 to help provide badges for the project. Provide Education’s senior education consultant, Darren Artley, whose son attends the college, says: “We fully support this project because it gives children a sense of pride and purpose. Barnsley is all about community and this is a great way of showing it.”

The Darton Voice project is open to students aged between 11 and 16 who want to volunteer to make changes both within the college and the local community. The older students become ambassadors for the school, supporting other children with the daunting transition from primary to secondary, as well exploring other ways of bettering their community.
