The Micro LionHeart Challenge

‘A Kick-Start to Enterprise':

A Custom Designed Enterprise Programme for Students at Key Stage 3

The Micro LionHeart Challenge is an inclusive Enterprise Programme custom designed for an entire Year 7 or Year 8 cohort at Key Stage 3 which is undertaking in a working day period within the School itself (i.e. within a school hall, gym hall etc).

It is delivered by our professional, in-house trained, highly skilled and dedicated Business Coaches in a creative and meaningful format, to allow for:

          1. A progressive activity to follow up and reaffirm previous Enterprise and Business Learning

          2. A springboard or launch into Enterprise prior to Key Stage 4



Each Challenge day commences with the announcement of a Challenge Theme: a Cutting Edge, Highly Technical, Economic Theme of National Importance, around which he Teams (comprising 10 Non-Friendship Group Pupils) must for a Business Proposal.

This is achieved by the Pupils quickly cultivating acquaintances, pulling together and working as a team to undertake a range of enterprise tasks and cover a range of business concepts at high pace. This is all accomplished inline with their Business Coach's mentoring and their understanding and use of pre-printed, structured Materials that LionHeart provide.


The Challenge is followed up by the provision to the School of a comprehensive 'In-School Evaluation' which details the quantitative feedback of EVERY pupil who took part, and also the feedback of EVERY pupil who took part, and also the feedback of the teachers and business people involved.
