Free Enterprise Challenge Open to All UK Secondary Schools

Take part in the National Enterprise Challenge during Global Entrepreneurship Week - 14th - 18th November

GEW 2016The team behind the UK's largest schools enterprise competition (The Ryman National Enterprise Challenge) are delighted to be announced as an official partner for this year's Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) campaign.

As part of the partnership, they will be running a FREE enterprise competition open to schools during the week, which this year for schools is Monday 14th - Friday 18th November.

The challenge will be a real-life apprentice style task set by one of the UK's most recognisable companies. Groups of students will be able to take part in the challenge as part of a lesson or during their own time.

The challenge will be based on the students developing an advert for a major UK company and will require the students to research the market and consider who they will target along with embracing their creative and presentation skills.

The challenge can be run individually or in groups of no more than 6 students, but how they go about the challenge and the time they invest in the competition is left down to you although a minimum of 2 hours to work on the concept is recommended. There is no limit on the number of teams one school can enter, however students must get permission from the school and a teacher will be required to fill in their details on the registration form.

The challenge which is open to all UK secondary school students will be released at 08.00 on Monday 14th with students having until Friday 18th at 17.00 to upload their entries.

Five shortlisted groups will be invited to attend the Ryman National Enterprise Challenge finals event (summer 2017) as special guests where the winners will be announced.
