Business Champion

Achieving a whole school approach to enterprise education Schools are now obliged to take a whole school approach to enterprise education and this programme looks at how it’s being achieved via the appointment of a business champion. Rachel Dixon, the enterprise champion at Foxhills Technology College in Scunthorpe, has spent three years ensuring that enterprise is embedded across the curriculum. We see her running inter-departmental sessions during which other teachers propose their ideas for a cross curricular approach to enterprise alongside her suggestions on how these can be finessed. Rachel also leads a class of low ability pupils who are tasked with designing and costing a school restaurant which will run on a commercial basis in the following term. Finally we see Rachel leading a lesson during which older students, known as Economic Wellbeing Officers, take the lead in assessing a series of enterprise resources and making recommendations as to which would be most attractive to fellow students.
