Today's enterprising challenge was a great chance for students to be focusing on developing their 'skills'.

Trading Triumphs
The learners were challenged to become stock market traders, take calculated risks, deal with set-backs and stay positive. Using their enterprise skills, the learners decided which companies would provide the best return for their client Dr Taylor. Following each investment, breaking news updates from the stock market compelled the pupils to use their Problem Solving skills to review and update their trading decisions to maximise their clients return.
Students sharpened their analytical skills, developing critical thinking , teamwork and communication skills. They particularly enjoyed investing their clients money and calculating risk.
