Learning Objective: To encourage pupils to develop decision making skills and gain an understanding of enterprise roles and responsibilities.
Relationships: working with others; negotiation, persuasion and influence; presentation; communication.
Organisation: decision making.
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.
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.
Pupils will begin to recognise the skills required to carry out enterprise roles and take responsibility.
