Bringing Industry and enterprise into the classroom
How do they work?
We know that employers require a workforce that is enterprising, innovative and skilful in order to stay ahead of the competition. To equip your students with these skills we have developed a series of workshops which are delivered during the course of an Enterprise Day.
This provides a fun and interactive way for students to experience a range of business and enterprise activities in or out of school.
With Liverpool Compact EBP's help, a group of employers can run Business/ Enterprise workshops, simulations or problem solving exercises for small groups of students. This gives the students an understanding of how different areas of business work and generates enthusiasm for enterprise, encouraging new entrepreneurs!
Workshops normally last up to an hour and a half.
Students may be asked to market a new product, build a new housing development or create an outfit for a celebrity for a red carpet event, using basic resources. Whatever the task it will link the school curriculum to the workplace.
The activities test a student’s ability to present, problem-solve, think creatively, plan financially and work in a team, to deadlines.
