The EBP provides a variety of opportunities for primary and secondary aged pupils. The aim of our work is to broaden horizons, build confidence, inspire minds and develop the skills they will need now and for future success.

Many of our projects help to support students in raising their aspirations and levels of achievement. Much of our work has an enterprise theme to allow students to gain work-related skills and develop their understanding of the world of work.

Lincolnshire Show Schools’ Challenge

The EBP has coordinated the Lincolnshire Show Schools’ Challenge for the past 10 years with young people across the county getting the chance to showcase their abilities and compete to become champions in their school category.

The Schools' Challenge is available to primary, secondary and special schools and allows teams of students to work on a food, farming, or sustainable focused challenge before attending the Lincolnshire Show to present their challenge findings to a panel of experts while competing for the title of Schools’ Challenge champions.

The 2017 Lincolnshire Show took place on 21 and 22 June and 36 Lincolnshire schools took part in the Schools' Challenge. Read more about the 2017 event

K’NEX Challenge

The K'NEX annual challenge is run in primary schools throughout Lincolnshire and Rutland with the help of our STEM Ambassadors. The overall aim of the challenge is to introduce students to the exciting world of engineering and technology through practical challenges that teach skills essential for progression within STEM subjects.

Partners in Reading 

A good level of literacy is key for the future academic and professional success of a young person. Partners in Reading aims to support pupils’ literacy skills whilst at the same time bringing them into contact with volunteers from the world of work. 

Volunteers provide free reading support to a pupil or small group of pupils from reception to year 6 (aged 4 to 11 years old) and will be involved in reading activities for one hour per week for 12 weeks at a local primary school.

For more information, please contact Clare Bryan on 01522 574174 or email

Partners in Reading is financially supported by Lincolnshire Co-operative Ltd.
