About the Course
A day exploring and developing the skills and attributes you need to become an entrepreneur.
Pupils are set challenges and work in teams on a project to develop and promote a product aimed at children.
The activity starts with an introduction to small, medium and large businesses and what makes them successful. As a group learners identify what makes a good invention and business idea. Their first creative task is to work in a team and design a product, considering their target audience and it’s USP plus designing a logo and slogan.

This activity can take place in the classroom.
This can be delivered as a half day workshop to one class or a full day to two classes, one morning and one afternoon. We can discuss break times and lunch times and adapt to ensure both classes receive an equal amount of time.
Typically for a full day we would look to break it down like this:
Class one - 9:00 – 11:45 (with a break)
Class two - 12:15 – 3:30 (with lunch break)
