Year 10 pupils from Risedale School in Catterick Garrison participated in a Big Enterprise Day last week.
The event was provided by As Creatives, an organisation specialising in delivering learning workshops to schools across the UK.
The Big Enterprise Day consisted of a series of four activities with two main themes.
These were promoting skills for learning and skills for life and guiding pupils through the 5Rs Raft of enterprise skills; relationships, resourcefulness, risk-taking (decisions), resilience and reflection.
Pupils organised themselves into teams of three and completed four different workshops and challenges.
Risedale pupil Harry Tester said: “The event was fun to take part in.
“It helped me to understand more about enterprise and how efficient teamwork is important to businesses.”
Pupil Blake Atkinson added: “I enjoyed trying to solve the problems which we were presented with and I think it was a fun enjoyable way of teaching us about stocks, sales marketing and managing resource usage.”
This event is one of several opportunities that Year 10 pupils will have to help inform their choices about pathways from Year 11 to Post-16 and onto the world of further education and work.
Risedale School’s careers leader, Mrs Porritt, said: “I’m really pleased that our pupils achieved so much today.
“I am really glad that they enjoyed the experience.
