The School:

Woodlands School, Coleshill, Warwickshire is in their first year working with Enabling Enterprise, committed to developing their students essential skills to support their learning in school and future success in the workplace. This first challenge day was a fantastic opportunity for a group of Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 students to put their essential skills to the test in a fun enterprise challenge.


The Challenge: Level Up

During the day, students delved into the world of gaming and used their Working in a Team skills to design and code a new computer game set in their very own school! In a series of tasks based on developing their essential skills, such as Using Imagination and Problem Solving, teams needed to reflect on their school values, research computer games and code a platforming game that showcased what makes their school great. The students are now preparing for their Games Expo, where each team will showcase their Game ideas to the rest of the school.


What they said:

  • “It’s going so well – everyone is engaged and I am delighted how those that can struggle in a group situation are so very positive about their team today.” – Teacher
  • “I like doing this. We are sharing our ideas – we’ve got good at it!” – Student
  • “We want our students to be workplace ready – these are the skills they will need.”- Teacher
  • “Working in a team can be hard for everyone – we are doing ok though…we are using our staying positive skills and including everyone’s ideas. I’ve got leadership points too.” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a super Challenge Day – it was great to work with you!
