Last term we welcomed Young Enterprise who came to introduce the Tenner Challenge which Year 7 have the opportunity to take part in during March – in teams they have to generate as much profit starting with £10 initial investment within a month. We have 17 teams taking part and they will be selling their products in school on Tuesday 21st March and Monday 27th March.
During the session they were introduced to basic business skills by playing a bead game; they had to buy raw materials (beads) and then produced jewellery and then sell the bracelets. Enterprise skills used during the day included leadership, negotiation, teamwork, creativity, time-management, communication….
The feedback that we have received from the year group has been very positive. We wish all the year 7’s participating good luck with their forthcoming challenge.
