Having accompanied a group of our KS3 and KS4 pupils, it was interesting to watch their gradual immurement in the project.
The presentation was well thought out, immediately explaining the purpose of the enterprise scheme and why they are focusing on schools. A good selection of start-up business ventures were used to demonstrate a range of enterprise ideas that young people had already come up with through the scheme.
A brief Q&A immediately resulted in the KS3 pupils taking an interested and active part, putting to good use the entrepreneurial ideals of ideas, questioning, problem solving and resilience.
I was particularly impressed with the Peter Jones presenter’s positive manner with the youngsters and his ability to praise, direct and encourage the range of responses put to him.
This was just the opening and a promising beginning.
