Engineering world leader Rolls-Royce plc has re-confirmed its commitment to East Midlands’ orchestra Sinfonia Viva and plans to further strengthen the partnership. Together Rolls-Royce and Sinfonia Viva will continue promoting science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects to young people in line with Rolls-Royce’s target of reaching 6 million people through STEM education programmes and activities by 2020. Both organisations have been working together for 20 years and the company’s support for the Orchestra has been confirmed for a further three years. As well as continued support for Viva’s concert programme and education residencies there are plans to expand the joint STEM work carried out by Rolls-Royce employees and Viva musicians.
These will build on recent projects such as the development of workshops by Viva and Rolls-Royce STEM Ambassadors to highlight the science behind sound vibrations to year four pupils at four city primary schools. Similarly, at the Darley Park concert STEM ambassadors also organised family activities - inviting young people to build balloon rockets before the popular outdoor classical music concert programme which was performed by Sinfonia Viva and supported by Rolls-Royce. The next planned activity will be the ‘Boat & the Blue’ concert, a water-related science, art and music afternoon designed for children aged under five on Sunday October 25 at the Rolls-Royce Heritage Centre. Highlight evidence that shows the most satisfied people combine self-actualisation life goals with the sense of reward from contributing to wider society; and help young people identify the personal and social value in jobs from the security guard to the brain surgeon to the carer.
Develop their resilience capabilities to cope with highs and lows of life in an uncertain world; and empower young people with the skills to take ‘informed risks’ regarding their life choices, but also recognise that when information is limited their intuition counts. On the first day of the twelve-day programme we went to Civic Centre in Hounslow, and there we were told about The Junior Apprentice and were given an introduction to Spark! On the seventh day we went back to Heathrow Academy and had to present our presentation on how to create a better customer experience.
On Day 9 our team visited different religious locations such as Church for Christians, Mosque for Muslims and a Gurdwara for Sikhs in preparation for the cultural festival on Saturday. On Day 10 we had to go to different locations in London by cracking some clues – ‘the London Trail’.
On the eleventh day we designed our posters for the cultural festival at Octink in Brentford. Overall this programme was a very fun experience for me and I enjoyed these two weeks a lot.
A key educational priority for Hounslow residents, the council and our schools, is to increase literacy rates among our school students.
The Hounslow Young Sports Journalist of the Year competition aims to encourage young people in Hounslow to improve their written skills by harnessing their enthusiasm for sport and for the Rugby World Cup in particular. The competition is open to girls and boys, aged 14-18 on the 15 August 2015, living in Hounslow or attending a Hounslow school, including the virtual college.  The closing date for entries is 20 July 2015. London Borough of Hounslow aim to continue this project annually by working with Harlequins, Brentford Football Club, and other partners.

The final Words for Work session for this academic year, took place at the Discovery Park in Sandwich, for a select group of Castle Community College students. Leaving the school premises, to present within a business environment, only heightened the occasion for the group of pupils who had spent 8 weeks digesting information in order to present back to ambassadors on the final day. The St Edmund’s Catholic School were able to display the fruits of their labour during a final Words for Work session, that displayed an impressive range of progression from where the students started the initiative 8 weeks ago. Their heightened ability to listen and analyse data was also evident, as the students confidently put forth detailed research that supported ideas and statements.
Clearly these children care about their local area and there is no doubt that many of these ideas would affect positive change to the numerous causes that drove these brilliant presentations along. For the third year running, Cummins Power Generation supported Kent schools in developing the next stage of energy production. The final, once again hosted at the Cummins’ Manston site, produced some incredibly prescient creations, complete with prototypes and a range of innovative presentation techniques. A deserving winner took home the main prize, but there is little doubt that the next generation of engineers will be strengthened by this gifted batch of young innovators.
The initiatives were quite remarkable and each group had thought of a unique and original way to get their point across. After lengthy deliberations, the judges finally came to a decision based on the combined elements of the business plan, marketing, finances and the presentation itself, that meant although by no means easy, a worthy winner was crowned at the end of the day.
For the third year running, Cummins Power Generation played host to the Runners-Up final of the Business of Enterprise. The project not only asks the students to formulate a genuine business idea, but also to sell it to a panel of expert judges who grill the contestants on the feasibility of such a concept.
A huge thank you goes to Cummins Power Generation who invested a considerable amount of time in ensuring that the final ran as smoothly as possible and to the incredibly talented young people who continue to make this project such a creative and inspiring initiative.
For the fifth year in a row, the Year 10 of the Simon Langton Grammar Girls’ School tackled 3 days of employer-led activities that would better prepare them for industry expectations and contribute to general future aspirations.
Each student was also entitled to the experience of a 15 minute interview that for many was the first taste of such a scenario. The St Edmund’s Catholic School welcomed numerous primary school children to their site, where they took on a forensic science challenge, introducing some of the incredible outreach projects the school is currently engaged in and providing each child with an ambassador who guided the visitors around the school.
Work Experience can be an invaluable opportunity for students to gain a better understanding of the workplace and the kind of opportunities available to them in the future. Bennett Memorial Diocesan School provided their Year 10 students with a jam-packed day of workshops linked to key employability skills that will go a long way towards the students having a fun, but more importantly, rewarding experience.
VisionXcel continues to gather pace as schools go through the difficult process of eliminating teams and submitting others to go through to the Grand Final.
The teams impressed both in their market stands, which were overflowing in information and decoration and their presentations, notable for each one being delivered in a completely different and impressive style. A fast paced and innovative day took place for the Year 10 of Highworth Grammar School as the students, in teams, took on the guise of a marketing department in an established, successful cosmetic firm.
The world of social media collided with pristine ad campaigns, as the students excelled in engaging pitches that impressed in their design and clarity of thought. Tasks were dispensed with as if the students had been operating within this field for years, all on top of actually physically making their product too! The Ursuline College provided their entire school with a series of interactive workshops, all designed to support the students as they progress through the school and enter into Higher Education or the world of work. The Green Park Primary School offered their children the unique experience of speaking with employers and organisations from a variety of backgrounds, getting the thought processes behind future aspirations started as soon as possible. The kind of pathways that each employer took to get there was also discussed, as well as some mock interviews which allowed the children to open up about their future career hopes and dreams. After weeks of hard work and thorough attention to detail, the Year 9 of the Borden Grammar School finally got the chance to display their efforts, enthralling a panel of business judges with an eclectic mixture of ideas and professional presentations. Of course this makes things very difficult for the judges who had to discern a winner from a pool of equally capable talent. With any impending work placement, it is important to make sure that each student is as ready and willing to make the most of their opportunity as possible. In an incredibly intense week, the Year 10 of the Ursuline College, showed huge perseverance by not only completing the Business of Enterprise project, but also in producing some wonderfully original and innovative ideas, that once again emphasised the limitless possibilities contained within such young minds. Dane Court Grammar School welcomed over 35 visitors from a variety of industries and backgrounds, to communicate the opportunities available in today’s global market. A variety of zones provided each student with a carousel of prospects and a wealth of information.
The final Business Surgery for the Year 9 of the Borden Grammar School offered the students an invaluable last chance to work with Business Mentors on their chosen and dedicated idea. Words for Work continues to demonstrate the power of partnership between education and the business sector, as the results currently being generated have shown an upward curve in terms of the students’ literacy and numeracy skills. With Kent’s VisionXcel final drawing ever nearer, participating schools are now beginning the process of choosing who will represent them in what will be a prestigious and unique occasion. After weeks of hard work, the Year 9 of The Marlowe Academy was able to show their efforts with a collection of creative presentations promoting some well thought out and innovative ideas. The Dover Christ Church Academy offered surrounding primary schools the opportunity to visit and take the opportunity of getting to know the school that little bit better.
It’s another week, which means another group of students are readying themselves for the chance to go out on Work Experience. Words for Work continued its stay at the Castle Community College, with the ambassadors and their designated Year 7 students really making headway as they tackle the numeracy and literacy initiative.
The Borden Grammar School launched their very own Business of Enterprise campaign, by providing their Year 10 with an introductory day of useful workshops that will better prepare them as they go forward in the competition.
EBP Kent continues to expand its database of employers, all willing to provide an invaluable experience to students looking for Work Experience. Whether there is a shift in the timing of the work placements from school to school, content analysis, vocational view or reflective outcomes, what continues to remain the same is the value of Work Experience for so many of Kent’s students. The Marlowe Academy was able to enjoy one more business surgery before their Business of Enterprise in-school final, providing the Year 9 with a chance to refine presentations and complete business portfolios. Following on from the successful launch days that took place in several Kent primary schools, VisionXcel visited three of those lucky participants, to follow-up the incredible work created initially by some very gifted children. Words for Work made its debut at the Castle Community College, launching with a meet and greet session, as Year 7 students lucky enough to take advantage of the initiative met their designated ambassadors who they will work with over the next few weeks.
With a week-long placement on the near horizon, it was critical that the Year 10 of the Knole Academy were able to take advantage of some coaching before entering into what will be a very unique and rewarding experience. Final number 2 of the week, in the Business of Enterprise competition, as the Dane Court Grammar School got their chance to impress judges from the local business community. The Marlowe Academy was able to take advantage of another business surgery as their in-school final looms ever nearer. Following on from the successful launch days that took place within several primary schools, VisionXcel arrived for another week at the Priory Fields and Warden House Primary Schools, to continue the development of social action ideas that the children will present to experts from the field of volunteering and, hopefully, result in the implementation of one or two of the initiatives.
The project will challenge students to re-evaluate the way they use communication skills and to work alongside employers on tasks that will stimulate thought and discussion around communication and how important it might be for the future.


Week three and the juggernaut that is The Marlowe Academy’s debut year in the Business of Enterprise project continues to gather steam, with each and every group showing a considerable amount of initiative and creative thinking. The second in-school final of the week saw another heated affair, with a plethora of highly innovative groups desperate to be crowned champions. The assortment of judges was amazed at the eclectic mixture of creative products and services that the groups presented, ensuring that not a single team was disregarded as a potential winner.
Difficult questions on finance and the practicality of each group’s idea were handled with incredible care and more than satisfied the judges. The final surgery of what has been a very productive Business of Enterprise project took place, providing the Year 9 of the King Ethelbert School with one last opportunity to tweak presentations and complete business portfolios.
It’s week two in the rookie year for The Marlowe Academy, as they continue to impress in their determination to succeed within the Business of Enterprise.
With some fantastic work placements booked in and imminent, it made sense for the Year 10 of the Tunbridge Wells Grammar School for Boys to be made aware of acceptable behaviour and general procedures for Health & Safety within the workplace. The Business of Enterprise came to a close, at the Charles Dickens School, as the students were able to take advantage of one final Business Surgery with Business Ambassadors who helped put the finishing touches to presentations and business portfolios. A second session of Business Surgeries saw a highly competitive group of Year 9 students working at breakneck speed, along with their Business Mentors, to develop some incredibly innovative marketing strategies.
The Business of Enterprise is now firing on all cylinders at the King Ethelbert School, as the Year 9 rapidly approach their in-school final.
The project has been met with a huge amount of positivity with this current crop of students, evident in the quality of work currently being produced. It is of fundamental importance that any Work Placement is preceded by instructions on safe handling and correct behaviour within a workplace, so it was with the utmost precision that the Year 11 of Simon Langton Girls’ Grammar School were briefed before their week long experience. Week two and the Year 9 currently tackling the Business of Enterprise in the Charles Dickens School show no sign of slowing down with their inventiveness and enthusiasm for the project.
The current crop of business mentors, charged with guiding the students through the project, have their work cut out in keeping up with the pace already set by these brilliant young entrepreneurs. After an incredibly competitive opening day, the Year 9 groups lucky enough to be selected to continue with the Business of Enterprise got the chance to meet with their allocated business mentors. A strong selection of ideas backed up by an even stronger selection of groups would suggest that this will be an incredibly intense final that will produce a very strong overall winner indeed! As with EBP Kent school work placements, a pre-discussion on the importance of Health & Safety was offered to the Mascalls School before their Year 10 students begin working with their designated employers. Many of the groups have shown incredible initiative by completing a first draft of their final of presentations, displaying an obvious passion for the innovative ideas that they have worked so hard to develop. Having already enjoyed a launch day for the Business of Enterprise, the Year 9 of the Charles Dickens School began the process of formulating an idea and building upon it with creative marketing and watertight finance. This year’s batch already appear to be an innovative bunch, impressing Business Mentors with a strong set of ideas and the methods they plan to utilise in implementing them. Social initiatives were generated within Warden House CPS and Priory Fields Primary School, as some incredibly creative young children looked at their local surroundings and the ways in which they could better support and improve them. The Year 9 of the Chatham & Clarendon School were introduced to the Business of Enterprise, where they were tasked with the formulation of new business ideas and the methods they will employ in marketing them. Often, on days such these, certain groups will stand out from the beginning as potential winners, due to their immediate commitment and effort on the project.
If many of these students are to be the future leaders of tomorrow, then we can rest assured that we will be directed by some very safe hands.
The Business of Enterprise came to a steady close, as the Year 9 of Dane Court Grammar School had their final round of Business Surgeries, before competing in the In-School Final. The Year 9 of the King Ethelbert School edged nearer to their In-School Final as another Business Surgery arrived, offering each group the advice and guidance of experienced Business Mentors. Some innovative methods look set to be employed, providing the judges with some tough decisions in selecting an overall winner. A select group of Year 7 students were able to benefit from a second day of employer engagement with Cummins Power Generation, this time visiting their site in Manston. Naturally, it is often a worry bringing students so young to a place of work, but significantly, their behaviour couldn’t have been more professional. The Year 8 of the St Simon Stock School tackled a day of tight schedules and large requirements, as they had the difficult task of rebranding and marketing a current retail product, bestowing it with another use.
A series of morning workshops meant that the students understood the value of keeping good time management and the benefits of working as an efficient team. VisionXcel visited another group of children who spent the day tackling community issues and looking at ways that they might contribute to their local society. The day was awash with creativity and a genuine respect for the positive influence such an initiative could have on their local community.
The activities included visualising sound vibrations in a number of ways ranging from playing a double bass to using an oscilloscope to see sound waves. We must also be clear about the principles and approach that has made our work so impactful to date. Our volunteers acknowledge the limits of their own knowledge and signpost young people to specialists when they do not know the answer. Through our 35th anniversary year we will explore how to refine our approach and programme design for the future and build on our success to date.
First we had to do Challenge 4 which was like a game in which we had to supply water to 5 customers from the reservoir with pipes and joints.
In doing so we hope to engage young people who more formal educational literacy methods fail to reach. The winners will experience the excitement of the Match-Day Press conference and the Press Box and Media Centre and their reports of the day will also be published.  All finalists will be able to join an exclusive tour of the media village for Rugby World Cup 2015 at Twickenham.
The challenge provides an enjoyable way for young people to explore their enterprise skills, develop social and personal skills and encourages team working and communications skills. With a long-standing volunteering partnership, around 10 GSK staff support children in literacy & numeracy and visit weekly to support a full lesson. With school expansion works underway, Beavers school considered there was lots to teach the pupils about Health & Safety. The game was applied to real situations which made it accessible for students and gaining advice from business people was paramount to their enjoyment. The aim of the Eton College Universities Summer School is to help prepare students for entry into a top university, often Oxbridge but not exclusively so.
Placements have come from Heathland School, Isleworth and Syon School, Chiswick School and Rivers Academy.
From July 2013 to June 2014, Sky provided 300, work experience opportunities and this year have increased their target by more than double to provide over 700 work experience opportunities. Presented to Eugin Song of Rent London Flat by Mike Freely of Octink, and Mary Macleod MP for Brentford & Isleworth. They are very keen to demonstrate the different careers available (that there is not only Information Technology but also finance, HR, etc). We were delighted that this year we were able to invite Hounslow students to attend for the first time.
From work experience, to speed networking and mock interviews – he always takes the time to support our events.  1999 was when the company was first added to the Spark! Will is always keen to get the school involved in as many work-related extra-curricular events as possible. Mrs Chhibba is Assistant Curriculum Leader in Heston Community School’s Business Studies and IT Department. As well as outstanding performance which has seen him be seconded in a senior role, he has continued with his apprenticeships studies, receiving excellent feedback from his tutor. With 8 apprentices currently on their programme, pathways range from brazing frame parts (a highly-specialised activity that can take two years to master) through to business administration and customer service. They train unemployed young people in horticulture, and produce a range of edible and ornamental plants for sale. The project once again provided some incredible results, displaying a genuine improvement in the communication skills of the students lucky enough to participate. Each and every student had vastly improved presentation skills, showing a renewed confidence in their ability to communicate thoughts and ideas into a coherent whole. A huge thank you must go, once again, to Cummins Power Generation, who lent incredible provision via some very supportive ambassadors indeed.
It is rare for a project to achieve such huge success during its debut year, but incredibly, the desire to make a difference pushed each and every group to produce moments of genuine inspiration. With momentum now driving the program forward, next year should generate a wealth of action even more impressive than this current batch of wonderful social initiatives.
With Cummins’ ambassadors supporting the students as they researched and formulated their ideas, the project continued to offer a high-end experience bolstered by genuine industry expertise. The students, who before tackling the main body of the challenge had to complete a series of power generating experiments, undoubtedly took the project to new heights, utilising the opportunity to work with an experienced ambassador and researching some wonderfully diverse ideas that would produce a more environmentally clean source of energy. The project has shown a genuine concern among young people for their local community and a desire to create change for the better. A couple of groups were chosen to go forward but in reality, any of the finalists could quite easily have gone through, such was the high calibre of work on show. Not a single school had failed to produce a group who didn’t excel in at least one area of the competition, meaning that the judges had a real job on their hands if they were going to decipher a winner from a pool of such genuine talent. The room was awash with entrepreneurialism, as each and every group made it quite clear that they hadn’t attended to just make up the numbers.
Huge congratulations to everyone who competed this year, in perhaps one of the most competitive Business of Enterprise finals for many years.
This year has been notable for the high quality generated by each competing school, meaning that the Runners-Up final would prove as equally innovative as the winners’ competition in London. This year the judges were met by a surplus of professional, young entrepreneurs, who had clearly done their homework and prepped for the inevitable questioning. From design to civil engineering, physics to fashion, there was a wide range of challenges and presentations that the students could learn from and research. Once again, the students proved equal to the situation and found the process to be extremely rewarding and fulfilling, many noticeably leaving the interview room with a renewed sense of confidence.
With that said, it is vital that each student makes the most of their placement, soaking up every minute of the experience that they possibly can. Barton Juniors are no different in this respect, determining a winner from a selection of incredible social action ideas that if given a chance would undoubtedly alter the local community for the better.
It is imperative that the students are able to operate in as safe an environment as possible, ensuring that their overall experience is an efficient and fulfilling one. A superb day - providing testament to the many creative minds that the school continues to produce on a yearly basis.
Workshops linked to transferable employability skills, health, well-being and careers supported the students, ensuring they will continue to move up through the school with a confidence and vigour necessary to become future industry leaders within the county and beyond. Some lively and very interesting discussions took place that displayed a maturity beyond their years and a genuine desire to succeed later on in life.
It has been hugely rewarding for Business Ambassadors to work with this particular group of students, who have been as competitive as they have been diligent in their approach to completing tasks and readying themselves for the final. As is so often the case with the school, the judges entered into lengthy discussions as they tried to put preferred ideas aside in order to come to a unanimous decision. That said the Year 10 of the Wilmington Grammar School for Boys was afforded the opportunity to participate in a series of workshops that will better prepare them for a normal work environment. The initiative is a chance for junior children to carry out practical science activities as well as sampling data analysis techniques in order to complete a competitive challenge.
It was no easy task completing the project in such rapid fashion, but each group performed admirably and showcased a final that was testament to the creative ethos of the project. Organisations both local and national, many with a presence overseas, took the time to converse with some extremely receptive Year 11 and sixth form students.
With so much at stake, it was imperative that any kinks were ironed out regarding presentations and business portfolios.
So far, the event has proven to be a huge success, but the final test will come when the students are asked to deliver a presentation showcasing everything that they have learnt back to the very ambassadors who have been teaching them. Judges from a variety of fields within the realm of social action were able to enjoy some incredibly diverse and innovative projects from the students and children at the Castle Community College, Priory Fields Primary School and Warden House CPS. From the very beginning, this particular year group displayed a diligent approach to research and development, many teams having already thought-up their ideas before the week had even started! The judges lucky enough to witness the final had a difficult time reaching an overall winner, due to the impossibility of separating between all of the groups, each one showing genuine quality.
The transition from primary to secondary can be daunting, so days such as these can prove vital in helping to make such a big step that little less extreme.
Learning to work as a cohesive unit will be the initial hurdle that many of the groups will have to overcome, but there is very little to show that any of the students will struggle in what should be a very creative competition in the school this year. A For many this will be a hugely influential period that will decide in which direction they might like their future careers to take. The benefits of such collaboration are, even now, beginning to show with students who were initially reticent to stand-up and present, now displaying some newly improved communication skills. A keynote address, from an ex-Borden pupil no less, really set the tone for a day in which the year group displayed that they will be more than ready to meet the challenges thrown at them by the Business of Enterprise. Nearly 9000 students each year are lucky enough to benefit from the diligent work committed by EBP Kent’s Work Experience department. With so much competitiveness coursing through this current crop of students, it is vital that they take advantage of every opportunity available. White Cliffs Primary School, Barton Juniors and Aylesham CPS, all continued the plethora of work that has social action at its core. Words for Work will evaluate literacy and numeracy levels, with an aim of significantly improving them by the end of the project. Workshops dedicated to employability skills and attributes extremely useful in a work environment, ensured that the students will have a better understanding of what will be required before they embark on a vital journey into industry. Rarely do competing groups from the school disappoint and this final proved to be no exception. The level and quality of output has been nothing short of phenomenal, especially for a school competing in their debut year, with detailed portfolios gradually being built and eye-catching presentations ready to impress judges. The initiative proved to be very rewarding and beneficial to a number of schools last year, helping to unlock students’ speaking and listening skills, whilst enabling them to gain an insight in to the world of work.
Each and every group, without fail, have committed themselves wholeheartedly to the project and this was evident in the manner with which they presented an array of polished marketing material and unique ideas. Key to the success for any group competing in the project is teamwork and in this respect the current Year 9 has shown they are more than capable of working as a cohesive unit.
The competing teams of the Charles Dickens School have put a lot of time and effort into this year’s project, making sure that very few stones were left unturned. The competitive edge that has been so evident throughout the project was intensified as group after group bravely presented in front of a panel of business judges who would ultimately decide the winner.


The in-school final can often be a tense affair, but the quality currently being displayed has left Business Ambassadors in no doubt that the competing teams are more than ready.
Undoubtedly the groups are committed, impressing Business Ambassadors with a creative zest that is so evident in their ideas. With the gritty detail of portfolios and finance nearly out of the way, the groups will soon have to display their creative abilities by making their presentations stand out from the rest of the competition.
A seminar, as well as worksheets and a Q&A session will contribute to the students having as rewarding an experience as possible. So far, so good, but this is only the beginning of what will be a very creative journey indeed!
With just one more Business Surgery to go, it is now becoming critical that the teams have their marketing strategy and presentations firmly in place. The Year 9 of the Charles Dickens School are at this exact point with each group diligently researching and developing unique methods for promoting their ideas, as well as learning the presentations that they will use to astound a panel of business judges.
An interactive presentation highlighted the potential hazards to be found within a workplace and the procedures to be followed, ensuring as a safe and efficient a placement as possible.
Although the groups’ ideas are still in their infancy, the blueprints for where the students expect their projects to go is nothing short of thrilling and will astound the lucky panel of judges that review them.
This was a critical moment as there was little time for the groups to bask in the glory of having made it through to the next round, with the now tricky business of further developing their idea in readiness for their in-school final.
A presentation, both interactive and informative, ensured that the students were in no doubt as to the kind of behaviour expected and practice required in order to make each student’s placement as rewarding and safe as possible. This will help as they fast approach their in-school final, where they will perform to a panel of business judges. However, with such little time left it will be imperative that every detail is refined and perfected, before the students open up their ideas to business experts. As with every competing school, this will be a gradual process, but one which will see even the most basic of ideas flower into something distinctly professional and worthy of the judges’ scrutiny. A wealth of themes contributed to an impressive week, where students weren’t just asked to think outside the box, but to do away with it altogether! The day was notable for the minimal amount of time that the students had for completion of the project, but the tight schedule seemed to have an encouraging effect as each and every pupil applied themselves with true professionalism and diligence. However, this particular day provided almost impossible choices for the visiting Business Presenters, who found that every group had attended with a huge amount of preparation already done and were notably advanced in terms of their finances and marketing. With so many young minds looking at their local community, it was refreshing to see such a positive response to a project that requires a great deal of altruism and charitable thinking. A wealth of ideas were carefully thought about and then researched, culminating in some thought provoking presentations to local community leaders and employers. Presentations were refined and finances sorted as each group excitedly prepared for what will be a unique and prestigious occasion. With time ticking down, it was imperative that the students started to look at their finances and how they will, ultimately, impress the judges with their presentations.
The day presented a unique opportunity for the students to experience the workplace of a global employer, by having a lengthy and informative tour of the site, as well as tackling some unique and exciting activities guided by Cummins Power Generation staff. With so much going on around them, it was to their credit that they responded in such a mature and respectful manner. The product in question, with its unique appearance, is perfect for such a creative initiative and there is no doubting that the year group was up to the task. Creativity and presentation skills were also encouraged during an event that pushed the students, but also seemed to get the best out of them.
As is so often the case with initiatives requiring a fresh outlook on life: the younger the minds the better the solutions. Each child seemed utterly absorbed in the activities set and astounded mentors with the level of research they were prepared to commit to their respective social initiatives.
After that different companies were discussed and then we had to start Challenge 5: The Market Stall challenge. Students receive a presentation about Heathrow’s Terminal 2 highlighting the shapes used to construct the new terminal and then they are invited to build their own terminal.
Winvic invited a core group of pupils and staff on to their site in Green Lane to experience first-hand the methods employed to ensure that everyone who works on or visits a site is kept safe. We were particularly pleased in this first year of running the challenge in Hounslow that a team from Heston Community School made it into the regional finals. With about 8 staff The Medical Centre has hosted over 120 work experience placements since 2003.
For example, he presented at the Apprentices Mean Business event (in March 2014) which took place during National Apprenticeship Week.
Students from St Marks, Lampton and Rivers Academy spent a day learning about careers at Cisco and seeing demonstrations of some of their technology. Over the last three years he has given talks in schools, volunteered at most school events and is one our top mentors for the Mosaic Enterprise Challenge! Through this he has made a difference to the motivation and opportunities for pupils across the school. A recent highlight for the school has been organising an Apprenticeship day in 2013 and 2014 which not only benefits Rivers Academy students, but other students across the borough. Their parents are more actively involved with their children’s education and now have a much more positive working relationship with staff and outside agencies. The Eton Summer school provides a unique opportunity for our more able students to be challenged, inspired and work with tutors who are truly passionate about their subject.
Alongside their core traineeship programme, Cultivate London have teamed up with Willmott Dixon, the construction company managing the Brentford Lock West development, to host an apprentice who works partly at Willmott Dixon, and partly at Cultivate London.
Hence our recommendation that the award is held jointly by three recipients in its first year. She seizes opportunities enthusiastically, & remarkably seems to know all the children individually. Local communities were analysed and researched as a range of eclectic initiatives impressed judges, not only through the detail, but the passion with which they presented them.
Some of the social action initiatives have been truly remarkable and Aylesham CPS proved to be no different in their very own final. Market stalls were arranged, providing the judges a chance to meet the teams face to face and learn a little bit more about each individual member. The presentations were delivered with such an energy and passion that every group became fixed permanently in the minds of the judges as potential winners.
The only thing left is to see how next year’s competitors can raise the bar once again, taking the project to even more innovative, creative heights!
The Business of Enterprise knows how to generate prestigious moments and once again, this final proved to be no different. Supported by some incredible presentations, that displayed a genuine passion for the ideas on show meant that this year’s Runners-Up final might just have been one of the strongest we have seen yet. The students, as with previous years, excelled as they displayed a keen eye for researching in great detail and an aptitude for delivering presentations within incredibly tight deadlines. With a Keynote, both hilarious and inspiring, kicking off proceedings, Make it Work continues to display the incredible talents of the school’s gifted Year 10. The school can be proud of the way its children took to the day and be pleased that some very positive futures await many of their students in the near future. The overall winner was a deserving choice and will now surely go onto impress at the Grand Final. Both days proved to be huge successes with some fantastic results delivered by the budding young scientists.
The winning group will now enjoy the chance to compete against a host of other Kent schools. This has been a particularly competitive year group so the chances are that the final will be a very competitive and tightly contested affair indeed. A real passion has shone through for many of these groups, who have shown a genuine desire to do some incredibly positive things in their community. What has been most notable about the competition in the school this year, is the commitment each group has given to producing the best work, portfolios and marketing strategies that they possibly could. Visiting primary school children were able to take part in a forensic science session that better highlighted the kind of work and curriculum activities faced when attending a secondary school.
In order to guarantee the students are able to get maximum effect out of their placements, the pupils were offered the chance to take part in a series of workshops that were inspired by transferable employability skills and competencies. The project can only be evaluated for its effectiveness once it has reached its conclusion, but it is heartening for everyone involved to see such apparent progress already being made. Already there would appear to be a raft of young entrepreneurs in this current crop of competitors and no doubt the project will begin to discover some more innovative thinkers as the weeks go by. So far so good, but now comes the difficult task of impressing judges and finding their way through to the Grand Final in July.
The presentations currently being put together already display a maturity beyond their creators’ years and a genuine concern for the society surrounding them. Past initiatives have shown substantial growth in both levels as well as improving communication, creative and listening abilities of all the participants involved.
An interesting final awaits those lucky enough to witness the delivery of some very exciting and innovative ideas. Business Ambassadors who have worked with the year group over the last few months were confident in the abilities of the chosen groups, but could not have guessed that the presentations would be delivered in such a confident and engaging manner.
With each member of every team working so efficiently, it promises to be a very competitive final in a month’s time. The calibre of work has been notably high this year and it has been remarked, by visiting Business Ambassadors, that it has been a pleasure to work with such capable students in developing some very interesting ideas. With little time to complete the necessary paraphernalia for future judges, it will be imperative that the groups continue to display the abundance of enthusiasm and initiative that they have already imbued the project with.
Thankfully, this has been a particularly capable year group who, blessed with an abundance of enthusiasm, are building some fascinating portfolios.
An inspiration to everyone involved, the three days offered a powerful reminder of the positivity that can be engendered by a collective of young, creative minds.
A particularly creative year group, there is little doubt that the final will make for an interesting and highly entertaining affair. Hopefully, the day will have contributed to the future aspirations of the students who attended and offered them a glimpse into the possibilities that such a large employer might have in the future. What made the challenge particularly hard, though, was that the students had effectively one hour to complete their work! In the first one we had to answer some questions asked and were told some of our qualities. Then we went to airport control room where CCTV was monitored and flight and passenger information was checked.
Working in groups of six, students use a STIXX machine; an environmentally friendly system, turning old newspapers into building rods that can be linked together and shaped to form models and structures. 25 mentors from companies including GSK, Sky, Allianz, BA, Kuehne + Nagel and numerous local SMEs worked in 5 local schools.
Through a longstanding partnership 8 places are reserved for LB Hounslow participating schools. Farana, Arti and other Cisco staff fit these events around their very busy day jobs, and show huge passion and commitment while working with young people. This year Will has also stepped up to become chair of Spark’s termly practitioners meeting which is a huge help to the charity and colleagues from partner schools.
Her students are constantly impressed with the way Nidhi goes “the extra mile” to enhance their classroom education. This shared apprenticeship is a perfect way to give a young person in-depth experience and knowledge of two different businesses.
They have gone above and beyond the 16 hours volunteer time allocated for Sky staff by volunteering on their holiday time to represent Sky, visiting schools to inspire students and help them build life skills.
Portfolios were also scrutinised as the teams gave a more informal account of why they were worthy winners. Unfortunately, with only a limited number of categories this wouldn’t be possible, but rightly each group were acknowledged for their outstanding efforts and innovative ideas. With 8 teams from the local area all vying to have their idea crowned worthy winners, there was an added incentive of defeating rivals all in the manner of a friendly business competition. It is hoped the initiative will plant the seeds of aspiration in many of the young minds who attended the days, encouraging them to look towards the world of STEM as a possible career. No stone was left unturned as each team showed a genuine desire to win and go through to the Grand Final. The students displayed a huge amount of energy and initiative in each one and showed encouraging signs that Kent employers will once again be about to receive some very capable students. All three should produce some wonderfully creative presentations taking place in front of some very interested and relevant judges. The dedication of each group to the project was obvious for all to see and was a testament to the hard work contributed by both students and business ambassadors alike. In the second one there was an interactive wall from which we got to know about different job roles. Some examples of Nidhi’s successes are: Launching the Heston Community School Career Academy, coordinating the school’s highly successful involvement in the Mosaic Enterprise Challenge and encouraging students to work with local business leaders visiting the school. The Apprenticeship model which Cultivate London and Willmott Dixon are delivering, offering a young person the opportunity to work in two different businesses, is an unusual but creative one which other businesses could replicate.
This has enabled students in the school to become involved with the making of a fishing programme which was televised, sporting links (including David Beckham) with Sky and apprenticeship opportunities for the students at Lampton School. It has been a pleasure for the business ambassadors who visited the school and now comes the difficult stage of preparing the winning group as they proceed to take on the best that Kent has to offer.
Many more students are now able to see the link between their school studies and the world of work. For students who lack family links to work, they have a better understanding of how they need to build their personal profiles with the needs of future employers in mind. We also believe that he has raised the profile of Lampton students with local employers – who have a better understanding of the positive attributes of our students. Then back at Sky Careers Lab we had to do the third challenge in which we had to create a product and market it.
