Work Experience

Enterprise education consists of enterprise capability supported by better financial capability and economic and business understanding. Young people need opportunities to be enterprising through applying their knowledge, skills and attributes – to ‘make their mark’.

“Enterprise encourages you to be creative in using what you’ve learnt about business and finance.”

Ofsted identifies two key elements: an enterprising learning environment in which students are encouraged to take the initiative and an enterprise process which is akin to project working.

All year 10’s will take part in work experience in the summer term. The launch of work experience will taske place towards the end of October term.

Enterprise education can help raise aspirations and develop valuable skills for life beyond school. Enterprise opportunities can challenge the most able students enhance a range of curriculum subjects. Students are motivated by enterprise learning. They enjoy being given the autonomy to tackle problems, take on responsibility, engage in real issues and evaluate the outcomes of their decisions.

As part of our commitment to Every Child Matters, students through enterprise – Enjoy & Achieve, Achieve economic well-being and make a positive contribution.
