Event date:  
Ambler Primary School
From the London Borough of Islington, Ambler Primary School has been working with Enabling Enterprise since 2017 to develop a set of eight Essential Skills in their students. Over the years, students across the whole school have been developing their Essential Skills through Lesson-Time Projects as well as Challenge Days and Trips to Employers.
UBS Broadgate

Worldwide, UBS employs 60,099 people who speak more than 130 languages and are citizens of 135 countries.
Pitch Perfect
The students started their day by meeting volunteers and learning about their hosts before touring the premises to get a better picture of what working there is like. Then they worked in teams to understand how banks can support businesses with their finances and started their challenge for the day. Their challenge was to secure a loan for a new business venture of their devising before running the initial set up of the business. The teams really had to demonstrate their Leadership and Presenting skills throughout the challenge, but especially at the end of the day when they presented their achievements back to a panel of volunteers.

We all tried to listen to each other and worked as a team throughout the day. We all had amazing ideas!

The focus and support given to students in each of the skills really helped them to develop across the day - I'll be taking some of the top tips back to my team!
