Bringing Industry and Enterprise into the classroom
Employers require a future workforce that is enterprising, innovative and skilful in order for their businesses to stay ahead of the competition. To equip students with these skills we have developed The Enterprise Day Programme.
Enterprise Days are a fun and interactive way for students to experience a range of business and enterprise activities…….. in school.
How do they work?
With Liverpool Compact EBP’s help, a group of Employers run Business/Enterprise workshops, simulations or problem solving exercises for small groups of students. They aim to give the students an understanding of how different areas of business work and to generate enthusiasm for enterprise, encouraging new entrepreneurs!
Activities normally last up to an hour and a half.
Students may be asked to design and market a new product, build a new housing development or create an outfit for a celebrity for a red carpet event. Whatever the task, it will link the workplace to the school curriculum.
Enterprise Days are aimed at developing students’ Key Skills including team work, presentation, communication, creative thinking, financial planning, problem solving and leadership.
