Help students worldwide create intl companies

by British Council

Summary

Broadclyst Primary School would like to establish a global enterprise challenge, where children from schools around the world connect to run an international company. Overall, there will be 10 international companies, each with a different product, competing to become the most successful company globally. In each country, the participating schools will organise their children into 10 'subsidiary companies' or 'regional office' of the international company.

Challenge

This global challenge will promote social interaction within teams and across countries and require children to solve problems, share ideas, communicate effectively and through the use of mobile devices and Office 365 encourage anywhere, anytime learning, both at home and at school for all involved. The student engagement will be high by the nature of the challenge, the competition, the purpose, the end product and the simulation of a 'real world, in context' learning situation.

Solution

Children will develop the concepts of business acumen and economic awareness, key skills at a time of Global Recession. Each school will place their children into teams where each child is designated a different role within the regional company. They will need to design a product, create a prototype, conduct market research, bid for investment funds, advertise / market their product, and produce profit and loss accounts with the ultimate aim of becoming the most profitable company.

Long-Term Impact

Currently Broadclyst runs an Enterprise project each year. We have extended this to a local school but also to a school in the Netherlands. It has already empowered and successfully educated many children and this project can be extended to involve initially 20 different countries but the potential is massive!
