The School:

Darton College is in their second year working with Enabling Enterprise. Previously, some Year 6 who were heading to Darton in September began developing their Enterprise Skills by taking part in Crime Scene Investigation. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from Year 7 to put their Enterprise Skills to the test.

The Challenge: Commit to Confidence

Over the course of the day, students worked together to develop their confidence, with a focus on how they could use and apply their Enterprise Skills, such asAiming High, Being Creative, Presenting, Problem Solving, Staying Positive and Working in a Team. They began by considering what confidence is and the habits they can adopt to develop their confidence. Throughout the rest of the day, students applied their Enterprise Skills to a range of professional scenarios in preparation for life beyond school. Finally, students created a personal action plan to continue their development in building their own confidence.

What they said:

  • “The learners took so much from today, they had so much fun, as did I and that was fantastic to see. It was great to see them so engaged.” – Teacher
  • “It has been a great day, the learners got a lot from it, working with students they wouldn’t normally work with.” – Teacher
  • “Today was really good, I was surprised at how creative I was and how being creative didn’t just mean being artistic.” – Student
  • “I was working with two people who I thought didn’t like me but I we worked together really well and I realised that they did like me and we can work well together.” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
