Enterprise Skills

OVERVIEW & AIMS

You want to do all you can to prepare your students for the world of work. You want them to develop those enterprising and entrepreneurial skills which will help them into employment or self-employment. Perhaps you are on the look-out for a new experience to supplement the enterprise work your students already do.
Through fast-moving, team-based challenges, your students are introduced to the concept of being enterprising individuals. We don’t just focus on famous entrepreneurs and multimillionaires. We convey in simple terms what enterprise actually means and how being an enterprising person can have such a positive and meaningful impact on their lives now and in the future. Students everywhere find our Enterprise Experience a very enjoyable programme.
Our interactive material is original, current and totally relevant to students in schools and colleges throughout the UK. We take our feedback from staff and students very seriously and are always improving the programme to offer the best experience possible.

IN THIS PROGRAMME, YOUR STUDENTS WILL:

• Enjoy fun, dynamic and stimulating challenges

• Experience a highly memorable event
• Be enthused by strong audiovisual introductions to activity-based modules

Your school will receive a comprehensive evaluation of the learning experience, based on student and staff feedback.

What Students say...

This has inspired me to think about running my own business. We did really well when we were buying and selling, our team made the most amount of money. I also learned that social enterprise is really important too.

What Teachers say...

This event was a nice balance of social and commercial enterprise. It really makes self employment and entrepreneurship a realistic and viable option for all. I liked the way that things were put into context, rather than just focussing on celebrity entrepreneurs we see on the telly. I think the students really got a lot out of the day. A very positive experience all round.
