The Enterprise Activity
Why is enterprise education important?
1. Style of teaching that enhances pupils’engagement with lessons and can
improve their classroom behaviour and performance.
“ It is a teaching strategy which motivates learners and can help raise
aspirations and develop valuable skills for further education, employment
and life in general.
Learners enjoy being given autonomy to tackle problems, take responsibility
for their own actions, engage In real issues and evaluate the outcomes of
their decisions. It is about helping the pupils develop enterprise capability,
financial capability and economic and business understanding.”
Enterprise Coordinator, North East, Business & Enterprise Status
The Enterprise Activity
2. Lack of experience in Schools
“The survey of more than 1,000 primary and secondary school teachers found
that while 90% agreed that entrepreneurship should form part of the national
curriculum only 30% said they knew how to teach it.”
Report commissioned by Rod Aldridge, Capita founder
3. Employers want it:
“Sage, Tata Steel, Citi Group and RBS-owned Natwest are among around 80
organisations who are calling for employability and entrepreneurship education to
be placed within the statutory curriculum in UK schools.”
Employers call for 'enterprise curriculum’, Telegraph, 22 March 2012
4. Gap in skilled workforce
“Britain has 37,000 engineering vacancies but produces just 22,000 engineering
graduates each year.”
Sir James Dyson, vacuum cleaner entrepreneur
The Enterprise Activity
In groups:
Prepare a two minute presentation to explain one of
the following terms as though you were discussing
them with class of year 9 pupils (13 – 14 year olds).
1. Enterprise
2. Sustainability
Think about how you can make it relevant to them!
The Enterprise Activity
The Scenario
Aspirational Teachers present themselves as a ‘house
building developer’ based in the South West that wants to
commission a new design for an ‘eco house’ to market for
sale to the general public. The maximum budget for the
house is £200,000.
Pupils will work in teams as an ‘environmental building
consultancy’ to research, plan and design an ‘eco house’ to
present to the ‘house building developer’.
The Enterprise Activity
Pupils will work in teams (maximum 8) to produce the following outputs:
1. Design a ‘mood board’
2. Produce a Blueprint/floor plan (to scale) for their house
3. Devise a simple building budget/costings for the materials and equipment
used in their design
4. Pitch/present their design to the ‘house building developer to justify
why their proposal should be chosen. Followed by a Q&A session
Mood board examples
The Enterprise Activity
Pupils will address some of the following issues in the activity:
• What is an ‘eco house’?
• What will they need to consider in its construction and design?
• How will sustainability and energy efficiency be maximised?
• What energy savings will be made compared to current house
• Who is the design of the house aimed at?
• Who would want to buy it and how will they make it attractive to
that market?
• How will they ensure the design stays within budget?
• What ideas for future innovations could be developed?
Learning outcomes
What is meant by the term learning outcome?
Why are they useful?
Learning outcomes are statements of what a learner is expected to
know, understand and/or do as a result of a learning experience.
They can:
- help guide students in their learning by explaining what is
expected of them which in turn helping them to succeed in
their studies.
- help teachers to focus on exactly what they want students
achieve in terms of both knowledge and skills.
Learning outcomes
Enterprise education consists of:
Enterprise capability supported by financial
capability and economic and business
Three strands of enterprise education:
1. Enterprise knowledge and understanding
2. Enterprise skills
3. Enterprise attributes
In groups:
Devise a set of learning outcomes for the
enterprise activity.
Activity Planning and Facilitation
What is the difference between presentation
and facilitation?
In groups:
Decide which statement on the handout provided
belongs to Presentation or Facilitation
Activity Planning and Facilitation
Definition of a Facilitator
A facilitator is someone who helps a group of people
understand their common objectives and assists them
to plan to achieve them without taking a particular
position in the discussion.
What qualities, skills and actions makes a good
presenter and facilitator?
Activity Planning and Facilitation
In groups:
1. Read and discuss the activity structure in your
handbook – pages
2. Devise a plan to deliver to the activity to 30 pupils, Year
9, Key stage 3 (13-14years). On this occasion the school
has provided laptops.
- Draw-up timetable. How long will each section take?
- Who will deliver what?
- Review the resources provided. What additional
resources will be needed e.g. mood boards?
identify potential problems and develop contingency plans
3. Review and evaluate another group’s plan
Why is evaluation important?
In groups:
1. Decide how you would choose the winner of
the Eco House.
What criteria would you use?
What skills would you want to credit?
2. Review the Pupils project evaluation form.
Devise an additional form for the Pupils to
reflect on their personal performance and
enterprise skills development.
