Beechwood Primary School
Beechwood Primary School in Luton has been working with Enabling Enterprise since 2015 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.
Hilton's European Headquarters
Hilton is one of the largest and fastest growing hospitality companies in the world, with more than 5,200 properties in 105 countries and territories. The European Headquarters in Watford include a variety of departments which support the operation of this global company.
Positive Performance
The teams spent the first part of the challenge conducting some crucial research by interviewing volunteers about their roles, responsibilities and how they use Aiming High and Teamwork skills in their day-to-day jobs. They then went on an exciting tour which sparked their imagination for their project: to plan a new reward scheme for the employees of their host. They needed to aim high in their teams to make sure they could identify key goals and effective rewards. The volunteers were able to help them through this research stage with further interviews and examples from their personal experience. The day was rounded off by performance management meetings where the teams introduced staff to the new reward scheme and the volunteers identified the scheme they would like to see implemented.

I have used Aiming High to set myself some targets that will help me improve my presentation.

These students are all brilliant leaders and today's challenge has really got them to think about their other skills.
