This year, more than ever, students are needing to develop their interpersonal skills, such as communication, listening, resilience and self-confidence.
In the world of work, skills such as negotiation, problem solving, and decision making are the key to being successful.
The Skills Service has an excellent track record of delivering inspiring enterprise challenges from year 6 through to year 13, developing students skill sets through a series of real-life business challenges.
For KS2 and 3 we have ProDucktion, where students participate in a manufacturing simulation which encourages enterprise and entrepreneurship.
For KS3 and 4 we have Build a Business, where students are tasked with designing a sustainable product, marketing it effectively and pitching it to their peers (or a panel), helping to develop teamwork, financial awareness and communication.
For KS5 we have Mock Assessment Centres, which allows students to experience the rigors of an Assessment Centre without the pressures of job hunting. Students are "candidates", and are treated as such, whilst attending a group interview for positions in a private sector business environment.
For a limited time only, you will be able to access the above enterprise challenges with a huge 20% discount!
You can book your enterprise challenge now, for in-school delivery, between Tuesday 22nd June and Friday 16th July 2021 (government and school guidelines regarding COVID-19 will be adhered too).
