Kobi Nazrul Primary School
From the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, Kobi Nazrul Primary School has been working with Enabling Enterprise since 2018 to develop a set of eight Essential Skills in their students. Students across the whole school have been developing their Essential Skills through Lesson-Time Projects as well as Trips to Employers.

The day started off with the students interviewing the volunteers to find out about their different roles, responsibilities and the Essential Skills required to do their jobs. Students then went on a tour of the premises, which allowed the teams to see the great variety of jobs available in the world of technology. Taking on the role of Technology Companies, teams were challenged to apply their Problem Solving skills to design a new app that employees could use to improve their work lives. Alongside choosing a catchy name for their new app, teams thought about the different functions the app would have and how each of these might help solve a work-related problem. Teams worked efficiently and were able to make key design decisions including the app’s icon and how it would appear in the app store - all within tight deadlines! The day culminated with the Technology Companies Presenting their app as the judges decided which team had developed Problem Solving and Presenting skills the most.

I've learnt that you can study lots of different subjects at university and still work in a technology company like Tata Consultancy Services. I also found out that you can study a degree in IT.

Today everyone can feel really proud of their Creativity, Problem Solving, Teamwork and Presenting skills. I've also been impressed to see students complimenting each other as well. We have all learnt so much today.
Teacher, Kobi Nazrul
The children have come up with really exciting ideas and have been thinking outside the box. It's hard to believe that they are still in primary school because some groups even thought about how to make their app on a practical level!
