ASDA Bideford hosted a P.E.E.P. (Pupil Employer Engagement Programme) event at the store on 24th October. The programme was set up by the North Devon Employment and Skills Board in response to a survey that concluded that children who had contact with employers on 4 or more occasions during their time at school were 5 times more likely to be in work, training or further education after they leave school. On the day the children from Bideford and Holsworthy were given: a store tour, a presentation and some tasks around problem solving, analysing figures and creative thinking.
