Belgrave Primary School have worked with Enabling Enterprise since 2018. They have been developing the eight essential skills through taking part in a whole school Challenge Day, completing Lesson Time Projects in class and by going on trips to our employer partners.

Bank of America Merrill Lynch Chester
Bank of America Merrill Lynch is one of the world's largest financial institutions, serving individual consumers, small- and medium sized businesses and large corporations with a full range of banking, investing, asset management and other financial and risk management products and services.
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.

Going on a tour
I thought today was a lot of fun and that I wouldn't work well with my group, but they supported me and we didn't argue once. We voted a lot.

It's been good to see them solidify what they've learned on their recent challenge day and put it into practise.
Year 3 teacher
I was really surprised by how well they worked together and so proud of the few who were scared to speak but got up and did a great job with their presentations anyway.
