Enterprise Challenge Days are a chance for students to showcase their creativity, teamwork skills and entrepreneurial flair. Working in groups, students design a ‘start-up’ business in a bid to impress our volunteers and make it through to a final assembly at the end of the day. Here they will get the opportunity to present their idea to a judging panel and hopefully do enough to win! We launched these high-energy events in 2017 and they have been met with praise from students, schools and volunteers alike.

A typical day consists of approximately 10 volunteers from local employers each working and supporting a class-sized group of students throughout the morning. The students then pitch their business ideas in the afternoon.
