Business Enterprise Trips

Trips to Employers

Business trips help students make the crucial link between the skills built in class and the working world. All children in Years 3-6 will visit a business once a year. The day involves meeting and working with professionals on a challenge task that has been designed to give the children a flavour of the industry and reinforce the employability skills. They tour the workplace and enjoy seeing the business in action. At the end of the day they present their work to a panel of experts and receive supportive feedback on their work.
