Our schools programme
John Lewis's flagship free education programme 'Bringing Skills to Life' is now in its fifth year and involves Partner time and the provision of curriculum resources. Through this programme we aim to equip and inspire children with the mind-sets and skills needed for innovative thought and action. The programme comprises of five key themes - Design and Make, Cook and Share, Storytelling, Technology and Innovation. The resources provide teachers and parents with easy-to-follow lesson plans and additional workshops are delivered by John Lewis Partners either in our shops or in the classroom.
School engagement is high, with some participating year-after-year. Our Christmas resources continue to be popular, providing curriculum-linked activities and lessons, as well as free-prize draws, along the theme of our Christmas advertising campaign. In addition we run an annual Innovation competition, where 9-11 year old students put their innovation skills to the test to solve real business challenges.
