Located in Birmingham, Greenwood Academy have been working with Enabling Enterprise since 2015, and are keen to ensure children across the school have opportunities to work creatively and collaboratively whilst using their essential skills. Today's enterprising challenge was a great chance for everyone to be focusing on developing those skills, particularly honing in on Teamwork and Staying Positive.
Learners were challenged to become stock market traders for the day, taking calculated risks, dealing with setbacks and Staying Positive in the face of breaking news updates throughout the challenge. The aspiring traders had to work in teams to decide which companies would provide the best return for their client Dr Taylor. Each investment stretched their Problem Solving skills as they reviewed and updated their trading decisions to maximise their client's return. The challenge culminated with the learners reflecting on how effectively they used all eight of their essential skills throughout the day.
