So...you've had an amazing experience on the Fiver Challenge - you've engaged students, had lots of fun, developed enterprise skills and maybe your school won a prize or two, but what next?
To continue building on the skills and knowledge the young people have developed over the last month here are some more exciting opportunities to help them continue their journey.
Young Enterprise Programmes
Young Enterprise are so passionate about embedding personal and business skills in schools that we've designed a whole array of programmes to take you right through the school year, each one building on the next.
The Young Enterprise suite of Primary Programmes enables pupils from the age of 5 to 11 to progressively develop enterprise skills, knowledge and attitudes.
Each hands-on “learning by doing” primary programme involves a minimum of 6 hours of creative, engaging and fun activities. They can be delivered as stand-alone programmes, however the real impact is achieved when they are used as a progressive knowledge building journey throughout a pupils primary school experience. In this way, you can gradually reinforce previous learning and challenge pupils on to the next stage of development. The YE primary programmes are:
Community Life helps pupils solve problems and gain new skills as they make decisions as part of a fictional community. The workshops have been designed in consultation with an education leader to work alongside the National Curriculum objectives for Citizenship. Find out more
This enterprise programme for Year 5/6 classes enables pupils to work in teams of six to set up and run a business over the course of a half term or one/two intensive weeks. While participating in an exciting business venture with their peers pupils will identify key business skills and consider their own skills and attributes. Find out more
The Young Enterprise Global Life workshop offers a unique and powerful way for pupils to see the world and make connections from local to global life. The Key Stage 2 Unit of Work enhances all areas of learning whether social or emotional, and intrinsically links to the Citizenship and Geography Curriculum. Find out more
Participants should look out for an opportunity to progress to the Tenner Challenge in their secondary school. Through Tenner aimed at 11 - 19 years, they will be able to further develop their skills introduced by the Fiver Challenge. This time they will be starting up their own business with a tenner!
