The School: Audley Primary School

The Year 3 students from Audley Primary School, an Enabling Enterprise Partner School, have recently successfully completed their ‘Trash to Treasure’ Lesson-Time Project with their teachers and classmates, and were keen to use their enterprise skills in a real work place.

The Business: Prologis, Solihull

Prologis is a global provider of industrial real estate, they develop, build and manage warehouses for many large companies and household names across the world. They employ about 1,500 employees worldwide, who serve more than 4,700 customers across a wide range of sectors.

The Challenge: Wonderful Office Workspace

Prologis staff welcomed the teams from Audley and an Associate from the Property Management Team, gave them the opportunity to tour the spacious offices at the Solihull base. The students were tasked with improving even further the office space for employees. In order to achieve this the students asked the Prologis volunteers about their roles and responsibilities in their place of work. The students listened carefully and impressed by asking thoughtful questions. They learnt about Helen’s role as a lawyer, Carmela’s position as a receptionist and James work as an undergraduate student on a university placement.

The Results:

The students showed motivation and determination to pull together in their teams and were enthusiastic about doing a great job. They were awarded skill points for demonstrating amongst other things, the ability to use their imagination, share their ideas and solve problems effectively. They certainly rose to the challenge when it came to presenting their creative, functional, yet fun ideas to the Prologis experts.

What they said:

  • “It’s been a great day. I feel proud that I joined in. I’d like to work here because the volunteers have really encouraged me. I feel more confident.” – Student, Audley Primary School
  • “The children have gained much from the day. They have worked so well together – they’ve really focused.” – Teacher, Audley Primary School
  • “Seeing how the children’s confidence has grown during the day – it’s been a really positive experience for them. I’m not sure I could have done it at that age.” – Volunteer, Prologis

Thanks to Prologis for such a great trip day, and to Year 3 from Audley for coming along.
