Located in Shard End, Birmingham, Guardian Angels Catholic Primary School have been working with Enabling Enterprise since 2017, 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 their 'skills'.

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.
I've really enjoyed today! It's been great working as a team with my friends. It was a pleasure to be on the trip and use skills that I will need when I'm older!

It was lovely to see such a well engaged group of young people and how they flourished as the day went on.
