On Friday 7 December, students from SHS took part in the Premier League Enterprise challenge. This activity has been delivered by Premier League and English Football clubs since 2008 and students were lucky to complete the challenge at Aston Villa Football Club. Students were tasked with increasing the number of 18-23 year olds who attend matches and the group created a presentation outlining their ideas and the research they had collated. They pitched their final ideas to a panel of judges from Aston Villa FC and competed against 5 other schools to win a place in the regional finals.
Whilst waiting for the judges to deliberate and decide on a winning group, students had a tour of the grounds including: pitch side, dug out and press room. Unfortunately, the students did not win on this occasion, but did themselves proud with their presentation skills and team work. Well done all!
The objectives of the programme are;
- inspire young people to engage positively in enterprise education
- develop important life skills
