The School:

Carlton Bolling College is in its first year working with Enabling Enterprise and today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from Year 9 and Year 10 to put their Essential Skills to the test.

The Challenge: Social Entrepreneur

Over the course of the day, students used their Working in a Team skills to develop entrepreneurial solutions to social problems that need tackling. In teams, the students explored the different problems affecting the people in their community, before applying their Problem Solving skills and to decide on the best way to help them. After developing a new social enterprise and creating advertising materials, students used their Presenting skills to share their solutions in a community trade fair.

What they said:

  • “They did really well today, you could see their understanding of the concept of a Social Enterprise really growing.” – Teacher
  • “I don’t normally talk in a group or speak to larger groups of people but I did today.” – Student
  • “We listened well to each other today and built on each other’s ideas to make our team idea the best.” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
