The Enterprise Springboard Project is a structured programme which aims to give students a better understanding of the world of work.
It motivates Year 10 students who may lack self-confidence, career direction or even feel alienated and so be at risk of underachieving.
The project focuses on developing the self-confidence, self esteem, motivation and enterprise skills which are linked to employability.
It is designed to complement the work-related/ careers education programmes in school.
Each project can accommodate up to 20 students.
How does it work?
The 5 phases
The Enterprise Springboard Project incorporates 5 phases of activity which run over the course of the academic year (September - May)
PHASE 1 September / October - Introduction
A Teacher induction to the programme, covering Aims, Objectives, and Outcomes for participating students.
PHASE 2 October / November / December - Industry Visits
An industrial visit is arranged so that students can identify how a business is structured, this includes a tour of the organisation and the opportunity to talk to staff about their roles and areas of responsibility.
PHASE 3 January/ February - Skills workshop
A full one-day workshop, held off-site, which focuses on the development of teamwork, leadership and communication skills.
PHASE 4 February - May - Enterprise project
This phase is undertaken over a period of 8-12 weeks. Students determine, plan and organise visits to research their chosen subject. They then share this information with their group.
PHASE 5 Celebration in May
A high-profile event at which students present their work to invited guests and receive their certificates and school awards.
A project with proven success
Liverpool Compact EBP has over 10 years experience of running this popular and successful programme.
Here’s some feedback from schools and past students.
“Our involvement with the ESP over the last 4 years has always been a valuable experience for the students taking part. The industry visits have been enjoyed by the students and offer a useful look into the world of work. The skills workshop at Tranmere Rovers FC offers both a fun and challenging day for the students as they work on their enterprise skills. The job research projects just get better each year. The celebration event is a highlight of the year and it’s a pleasure to see students giving a presentation in front of an audience - something they always say they will never do! “
“This was the best course that I have done in school so far. I learnt a lot about the world of work and what I have to offer. I am a better team player now and this has made me more confident.”

(now known as Enterprise South Liverpool Academy)
“The skills workshop at Tranmere Rovers was awesome. We had a great laugh but worked really hard developing enterprise skills. I now know what I want to do and how to get there. This whole course was brilliant but I only wish I could do it again!”
