Learning activities

Use the key word card sort activity to introduce and enable the pupils to discuss and understand the meaning of key enterprise terms e.g.

Resources
Advertising
Selling

Discuss the various ‘jobs’ that need to be allocated to individuals or groups for the enterprise project and the skills required for each one.

Discuss with pupils what criteria they might use to allocate ‘jobs’ e.g.
What do you need to be good at to do that job?
Who is best at?
Who will volunteer to do that job?

Pupils discuss and decide the individuals (or groups) to take on each role. Pupils could be encouraged to stand for ‘election’ and give a brief presentation on why they should be chosen for the role.

Record the ‘appointments’, list the tasks to be undertaken and outline the skills identified needed for each task.

Learning outcome

Pupils will begin to recognise the skills required to carry out enterprise roles and take responsibility.
