9 February 2017 – Business and Enterprise

For our Business and Enterprise Day 2017, we asked local children to assess their local area and think about a solution to a social, cultural or environmental issue.

In pairs, teams had to research previous case studies of social entrepreneurship in Nottingham and think up initial ideas. By the late morning, children had to develop one achievable idea and develop it into a project plan, filling in a proposal form that considered cost, stakeholders, timescales and outcomes.

The variety of proposals included an ‘Anti-cigarette Store’, a ‘Cultural Cookery Class’ and an animal theme park with sports complex.

Well done to all the schools involved! You impressed our guest visitor and school governor Mr Peadon whom works very closely with our Sixth Form Young Enterprise teams. He commented that some of the creativity and business acumen demonstrated by the children showed huge potential.
