Year 10 Enterprise Event

Year 10 Enterprise Event

On Thursday 7th November Year 10 students took part in an enrichment event designed to enable them to develop their Enterprise and Business Learning skills and prepare them for a successful transition into further education, apprenticeship and skilled employment.

Students were unable to work within their usual friendship groups and had to learn how to work as team players with people they are not friends with.

Each team had to set up a band and produce a CD cover, poster and merchandise for their group. They also had to create a power point presentation listing venues, prices of tickets etc. The finale – definitely the most worrying for some students and the highlight of the day for others, was the performance of a song to the rest of the year group.

The day was a resounding success with students rising to the challenge and many of them excelling. Everyone participated and remained focused and on task throughout the day.

Comments from students included:-

  • I really enjoyed the whole day
  • I loved watching the performances
  • I liked being part of a team
  • I was really nervous about performing but proud of myself after

I was extremely proud of all the students and their attitude towards the day and their participation.
