The Enabling Enterprise Summer Forum, on Friday 16th June, took place at the Societe Generale Liverpool Street office, in the heart of the capital. EE Champions from Primary Schools, who were either new to the role or to the EE programme, came together to learn from one another how to successfully embed enterprise education in their school’s curriculum and maximize the impact of their EE activities across the school. Through sharing experiences, inspiring one another and reflecting, teachers successfully planned for the coming year.

The day kicked off by looking at some highlights from the year. So far Enabling Enterprise programmes have worked with over 86,000 children and currently has 257 trip venues spread throughout England. Teachers were also given a preview of the new resources and challenge days including Game On challenge day and skills assemblies.


Our primary teachers then started to reflect back on the year just as it comes to its conclusion. They were asked to think, what has been going on in your school this year? And, if you could do one thing differently next year, what would it be? Teachers spoke in groups to discuss the questions and share their reflections. Some ideas included the switching of year group focus, using staffing time to share Skills Builder to ensure it is fully utilized and increasing school wide flexibility of Challenge Days.



The main part of the day focused on networking. The teachers were given time to share their ideas and experiences on lesson time projects, challenge days and teacher support. Conversations covered all range of topics from how best to increase the impact of Challenge Days beyond the day itself, to incorporating the wider community such as local businesses into lesson time projects. Feedback from the day showed that teachers found this incredibly valuable as a tool for maximising the Enabling Enterprise experience within their school.



The forum focused upon the Enabling Enterprise teachers learning from one another. Through sharing ideas and listening carefully to what went well and what could be improved in the running of Enabling Enterprise, teachers felt inspired to plan and look ahead to the next year.

Using the conversations and discussions from earlier in the day, teachers roughly planned for the successive year. Aiming to make next year the best one yet, they delved into not only top-level planning for the programme but also how to support individual students. All of our teachers at the event left feeling energized, excited and full of ideas for the year to come.


What they said:

  • “Always great to share ideas and thoughts with others and time to reflect and plan ahead”
  • “The highlight for me has been the networking and hearing about what went well and what could be improved in other schools”
  • “It has been really useful to hear how other people are running the programme”


Thank you so much to Societe Generale for hosting the London Summer Forum, and to our London Primary school teachers for coming along and sharing their enthusiasm!
