Brackenbury Primary School
Brackenbury Primary School are in Hammersmith area and have worked with us since 2012. Students and teachers have been working on building the eight Essential Skills through Lesson time projects, Challenge Days and trips to employers.
Brewin Dolphin London
Brewin Dolphin is one of the UK’s leading providers of personalised, discretionary wealth management services, offering investment management and financial planning services to investors and intermediaries. With origins dating back to the mid-18th century, they were one of the founding firms of the London Stock Exchange. They have 28 offices throughout the UK & Ireland and have a wealth of experience dealing with investment markets.
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.

When we got some scathing press about our business we had to Stay Positive. This was difficult because we wanted our business to do well, we had to not give up.
Year 6 Student
We have done lots of Enabling Enterprise trips and projects, they are brilliant. It is great for the children to work on these skills and see a business in action!
Teaching Staff
It has been great to see the children come out of their shells over the day. They were all so passionate about their ideas and able to present them really well. We would be customers for all of their products!
