Derbyshire Ready Enterprise facilitator
Ready Unlimited worked alongside Derbyshire LEA to create the Derbyshire Ready Enterprise curriculum, in which pupils are encouraged to adopt 13 key skills that are seen to equip young people of today with the skills needed in the workplace of tomorrow. Amongst these skills are leadership, teamwork, initiative and effective communication. As an enterprise leader, I look for opportunities where pupils can take the lead, such as organising tea parties, pop-up museums, and writing their own scripts for assemblies and plays. I also led the children in being part of the 'The Fiver Challenge', run by Young Enterprise, in which pupils have 1 month to set up a mini business with start-up funds of £5 to create a product or service they can sell or deliver at a profit and engage with their local community.
