From the London Borough of Ealing, John Perryn Primary School has been working with Enabling Enterprise since 2013 to develop a set of eight Essential Skills in their students. Over the year, students across the whole school will be 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.
The students have had a brilliant day working on a challenging set of tasks that have really stretched them. I'm really impressed with the way they came together and supported one another throughout the day.
Teacher, John Perryn Primary
A great leader is someone who listens to how other people in their team feel and helps them to do the best they can. I think I'm a good leader and my team agreed with me!
Student, Year 3
I had a great time working with the students from John Perryn. Lots of great ideas and enthusiasm across the day.
