Ms Vernon said: "It has been necessary to raise awareness of transition within all of these areas because we didn't want transition just to be an educational issue."
To prevent a 'judder' in the young people's education schools built on best practice to create a more seamless link between primary and secondary curriculum and teaching styles.
Ms Vernon said: "I'm delighted the voice of the teachers and students has been heard and that so much emphasis now across Barrow is being put on acting on the recommendations they made. This is the power of student voice.
FLTP also wants to establish joint year six and Le Coq Sportif Racerone Nylon year seven business projects.
This year the group is further developing the work. Lancaster University has been evaluating the work of the project and it will be used for case studies in Cumbria and nationally.
A group of around 40 teachers and students from Barrow primary and secondary schools, led by Caroline Vernon, the headteacher of Victoria Junior School, were trained to become researchers.
Evidence from the National Foundation for Educational Research said 40 per cent of pupils lose motivation and make no progress in the year after they transfer to secondary school, so a Barrow organisation set out to make sure youngsters in the town were getting a good experience.
Victoria Junior School pupils set up their VJSudz company, which makes and sells soap and natural bags, and made more than 900 profit.
They set up the business with design, product quality, marketing and finance roles, bringing in expertise from local business and Furness College. They also wrote to businesses and secured sponsorship in exchange for printing their company names and logos on their bags. Mike Armstead, the chief executive of Wax Lyrical, was so impressed that he allowed the products to be sold in his shop.
In order to act on all the recommendations the FLTP partners linked up with organisations including Cumbria County Council's Children and Young People's Working Group, the Locality Planning Group, and Local Strategic Partnership.
"We are already seeing the benefits, the practical transition experience for the students has been much better."
Pupils worked with educational researcher Katie Carr to find out what engages learners. The young people then designed the 'Path To Success Document'.
Projects are being set up between the Education/ Business Development Group, so pupils know what the career opportunities are there for them and what skills, qualifications and experiences they need. Within this group are primary, secondary and college staff and representatives from BAE Systems, Vattenfall, Tritech, Centrica and Wax Lyrical.
The funding will also contribute to the making of a DVD sharing this practice with other areas. The project has also won the endorsement of Barrow and Furness MP, John Woodcock.

through the county council's Children's Service and Barrow Local Committee. This term the local committee awarded the project 14,000, 4,000 more than the bid, as councillors were so impressed with the project.
FLTP has teamed up with the Centre for the Use of Research and Evidence in Education to make a joint bid for 500,000 government funding for a three year programme linking engineering and education to design new approaches to raise attainment and aspiration. The evaluated information would then be used nationally. In February Ms Vernon was one of just two headteachers who Mick Waters, Professor of Education at the University of Wolverhampton, invited the Maldives to share good practice with the government.
One of the biggest areas of the project has been linking education and business to provide 'real and purposeful learning' from primary school age.
The Furness Learning Transition Project was launched in the 2009/2010 academic year through the former Barrow Excellence Cluster Partnership.
Other initiatives included Camp Junior2Senior where primary students camped out in the grounds of Ormsgill Primary School and took part in activities to get to know pupils from Le Coq Sportif R900 Chambray
