Enterprise and Creativity Days
Education Business Partnership deliver a range of educational activities aimed at developing students Enterprise and Work-related skills. Every activity or challenge can be tailored to suit any year group and can be Citizenship, PSHE or curriculum-related.
Challenge events are designed to fit with a school’s individual requirements in terms of specialist status, curriculum focus or occupational area.
All activities are supported by business volunteers who give their time to support young people and give the events a ‘real world’ feel.
Evaluations show that students gain confidence and improve their communication, problem-solving and team working skills by participating in these events.
Walsall Rotary Club Young Chef of the Year
This very successful competition has been organised by Education Business Partnership and Walsall Rotary Club for a number of years. There are no entry qualifications, other than age limits and it is really a practical test of flair, imagination and enthusiasm in preparing a main course for two people with a ‘Healthy Options’ theme. It offers the opportunity for students to develop their food preparation skills as well as addressing many aspects of the Enterprise agenda.
The meal can be based around meat, fish or vegetables within a set budget with the entrants expected to provide receipts for the main ingredients.
There are two categories, Key Stages 3 and Key Stages 4, the winner and runner-up from each category receive a shield from the Rotary Club.
The winners are invited to represent Walsall in the Black Country stage of the competition.
To enable learners to develop the characteristics of 'enterprising people' for themselves, their employers and their communities.
Businesses want young people not only with basic and key skills but with those positive attitudes and behaviours characterised as enterprising. The Education Business Partnership provide programmes and individual activities to support the delivery of enterprise learning experiences, all with the benefit of support from local business and employers.
All of our enterprise activities are tailored around a brokered conversation with both the school and their local businesses, taking into account demographics and employment trends that will directly affect the career choices or options available to young people entering the work market.
