Find out how Foxhills Technology College in Scunthorpe is achieving a whole school approach to enterprise education via the appointment of an enterprise champion.
Rachel Dixon has spent three years ensuring that enterprise is embedded across the curriculum at the school. This is partly achieved through inter-departmental sessions, allowing teachers to discuss ideas for a cross-curricular approach, with Rachel then suggesting ways in which these proposals can be refined.
In addition, Rachel leads a class of low ability pupils as they design and cost a school restaurant, intended to run on a commercial basis in the following term.
Finally, she leads a lesson during which older students, known as economic well-being officers, take the lead in assessing a series of enterprise resources and making recommendations as to which would be most attractive to fellow students.
