The purpose of these materials is to raise awareness amongst students not only of the importance of enterprise education but also of the innate talents they already have in this increasingly important area of lifelong learning. Enterprise education is a key learning outcome of the statutory requirement to deliver work-related learning at KS4. The core capabilities of enterprise, financial, business and economic understanding are well illustrated by Royal Mail: an organisation that has had to respond to a changing world for longer than most. A passion for effective communication in all its forms underpins the organisation. For that reason this project encompasses a wide range of interrelated skills, from functional literacy to thinking and learning strategies essential to independent, risk-taking and enterprising attitudes.
These materials offer a flexible and adaptable package of support to those schools wishing to launch or extend their current provision for enterprise education. They may be used in a variety of ways and with students of KS3 to KS4.
The Lead Lessons are based around a series of awareness-raising exercises. They can all be used as preparation to the main day’s activities and should be selectively employed according to the perceived needs of the pupils.
