Y8 pupils have been participating in the Tigers Trust Enterprise programme this half term. The programme sees them develop key employability skills such as leadership; communication; resilience and financial management and even included a visit to the KC stadium to speak to staff on how it runs as a business.
Pupils have been working in small groups each week completing a series of tasks related to how Hull City is ran as a business enterprise. Pupils even had to pitch a new fast food product to be sold at the ground in a Dragons Den style format and present to others. Pupils came up with some incredibly unique and desirable products.
Pupils have shown an excellent attitude and have learnt a lot of key skills that they will require in the future and the students have found the programme extremely relevant and useful. All pupils on the programme have gained an entry level ASDN qualification which can be used on their future CV’s. Pupils also won prizes for their contributions including a signed Hull FC football and match day tickets!
The programme will run again in January with a new cohort of Y8 pupils.
