Enterprise Team Challenge

The Enterprise Team Challenge is a facilitated one-day workshop at a Scottish primary or secondary school and is designed to improve pupils’ awareness, aspirations, and attitude towards the world of work.

The workshop was highly motivational and really got the children thinking about how good group work skills translate into the work environment.

This engaging programme requires no preparation by volunteers; a full briefing is given on the day, along with all materials required. It all starts with a two hour briefing in which we explain how to lead a short enterprise workshop aimed at upper primary and lower secondary age groups.

The workshops are fun game or competition-based exercises designed to increase pupils’ awareness of the skills and attitudes needed for the world of work. One of the most effective ways to achieve this is to use employee volunteers not connected to the school, working in collaboration with pupils.

Following the training session we will spend the rest of the day operating the workshop with two class/year groups from the school. There is no PVG requirement to take part, a project leader from Business in the Community Scotland and a member of schools teaching staff will be with you at all times.

“I thought the event was excellent. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves but also understood the purpose of the exercise and were talking afterwards about how it was like having their own business.” - Scarlett Palmer, Castleview Primary School teacher
