Holly Park Primary School
From the London Borough of Barnet, Holly Park Primary School has been working with Enabling Enterprise since 2014 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.

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 was really impressed with the Aiming High that I saw - you worked your ideas out really clearly and came up with something so original.
Teacher, Holly Park Primary School
It was so fun to work with them and see all of their ideas. I would definitely like to volunteer again, it's a great way to spend a few hours.
UBS Volunteer
It is really important to work as a team when you are starting a business so you get lots of ideas and can pick the best one.
