Salisbury Primary School
Salisbury Primary School has been working with Enabling Enterprise since 2012 to develop a set of eight essential skills with their students. Over the years, students across the whole school have been developing these skills through Lesson-Time Projects as well as Challenge Days and Trips to Employers.
JLL Canary Wharf
Jones Lang LaSalle Incorporated or JLL is a professional services and investment management company specialising in real estate. JLL employ more than 58,000 people in more than 1,000 locations in 80 countries. Alongside construction, development and property management, JLL also offers a range of financial services.
Building Bridges
From the moment they arrived, the students were putting their problem solving and teamwork skills into action. First of all by gathering as much information as they could about their hosts and the volunteers who were joining them for the day and then further as they explored the workplace through a tour. Then, in teams, the students were set their challenge, to design a new bridge for the fictional town of Bogsby. They set about researching possible locations, considering community concerns and building a scale model of their proposed scheme. After all this, they took their proposal to a panel of volunteers representing a planning committee, who scrutinised not only their design but also how effectively they had used their Essential Skills across the day.
TeamworkProblem Solving
Each of the teams were great in different ways. Some made sure they included everyone, others were creative thinkers and some were confident when presenting. It was such a great day!

Our team worked well together by listening to different ideas and trying to include everyone to make the strongest bridge.

It is a great experience for them and really good to see them present in different ways so they can work on these skills in a work environment.
