William Tyndale Primary School
From the London Borough of Islington, William Tyndale Primary School has been working with Enabling Enterprise since 2013 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.

Tricky Trials
On arrival at their hosts, the students were introduced to volunteers who would be assisting them in their challenge on the day. They then found out more about the business by going on a tour and interviewed the volunteers to find out how they use the Essential Skills in their roles, particularly focusing on the use of Problem Solving and Presenting skills. Then, working in teams, the students started working on their different cases, either as the defence or prosecution. With the help of the volunteers, they identified the best arguments, analysed evidence and listened to witness statements as they prepared to go to trial. At the close of the day, they presented their evidence to a judge and jury made of volunteers who decided the outcome of each case.

This trip has been the highlight of my week! Working with such dedicated and focused students has been excellent and I can't believe how good their Problem Solving and Presenting skills are at such a young age!

This has been the best trip ever! My team were so determined to prove that Goldilocks was guilty that we had to use all eight skills to be successful!

It's a brilliant idea bringing students to a place of work and having volunteers on hand to help them with a challenge. It gives them such a great insight into the legal sector and the skills they will need.
