THE £10 CHALLENGE
School children, communities, and families are the direct beneficiaries of the Inspire Achieve initiative. Businesses and founders also greatly benefit by joining Inspire Achieve through positive media attention, unique and inspirational ideas for their own businesses, and brand enhancement.
Our mission is to help school children learn valuable business lessons with the help of real business experts. By challenging children to use their creativity and ingenuity to problem-solve, we aid them in setting the foundation for a lifetime of business success.
The Inspire Achieve mission is universal, one that we hope other businesses embrace to the betterment of future generations. Not only does joining this initiative help out primary school children, it is also an excellent way for business founders to get involved with the community and local schools.
By joining together to aid children in discovering the power of creativity, we can successfully transform the way they see business.
The result is children who are excited to explore creative ideas in a business setting and ultimately, inspiring them to achieve their dreams.
I would like to thank you for giving Ben the opportunity to take part in the £10 challenge. He absolutely loved taking part in the process and learnt so much from being involved. I picked him up after school this evening and he did not stop talking about his day out and told me all about the activities they had had to do and the lunch that they had eaten. He has been really inspired by everything that Simon has achieved and how he has converted the old church into his offices. Thanks to Mr Brooke for all his hard work in coordinating the project, I know that it has involved a lot of time and effort on his behalf. Many thanks
This business project has been inspiring for the children. They have benefited from Simon’s knowledge of business and his enthusiasm in helping them set up their own businesses. The children have been able to apply their knowledge of the curriculum to a real life context and now understand more about business as a future career.
The business project was an invaluable learning experience for all of the children involved. It gave them a great opportunity to work as part of a team, understand the principles behind how a business works and apply the skills they learn in school to a real-life situation. Many of the children faced problems along the way, but they showed great resilience to overcome them and keep going. The children grew in confidence throughout the project and I was amazed at how confidently they presented their businesses on market day. It gave them all a chance to shine.
The £10 challenge was a great project because we had the chance to work with our friends and learn what running a business is like. Teamwork was really important and we learned to work together and keep going when things didn’t go to plan. We were really proud of ourselves when we realised we had finally made a profit.
I really enjoyed the £10 challenge because I learned all about how to work within a budget and how to compromise as part of a team. It was a fantastic opportunity for me to feel what it’s like to make important decisions to make our business as successful as possible.
The £10 challenge was a great experience because I got the chance to sell products and make money. Before the project, I didn’t understand what profit was and how it worked. Working on my own business really helped me to do that. It also helped me realise how important it is to work as a team.
