Towergate Insurance Brokers has been named as one of 2B Enterprising’s new Corporate Engagement Partners, supporting them with their ‘The Bumbles of Honeywood’ programme at Baglan Primary School.

‘The Bumbles of Honeywood’ is an enterprise skills programme created by 2B Enterprising to support the next generation of young people with the skills required for both work and life.

Under the new Curriculum for Wales, primary school teachers are required to teach enterprise activities and ‘The Bumbles of Honeywood’ is an accessible, creative and inspirational portfolio of resources to support their delivery, designed by teachers and enterprise experts.

Businesses like Towergate Insurance Brokers, one of the UK’s leading independent insurance brokers, engage in the programme to support schools with these resources, covering the cost of the hundreds of interactive enterprise activities, lesson plans and classroom decorations.

Towergate Insurance Brokers, which has over 60 offices nationwide, has a strong Welsh presence and a long-standing reputation for contributing to the community in which it works.

Scott Mewse, Account Executive at Towergate Insurance Brokers, said: “We’re so pleased to be able to help Baglan Primary School access The Bumbles of Honeywood programme, so that all children have the opportunity to gain essential skills in a fun, engaging way.”

Jayne Brewer, CEO at 2B Enterprising, said: “We’re very happy to be partnering with Towergate Insurance Brokers to develop the key enterprise and life skills of the young people at their chosen school, Baglan Primary.

“Our Corporate Engagement Partners bring knowledge and experience from the boardroom to the classroom to help raise the aspirations of young people across Wales, and their investment in our future generations is celebrated.”
