BP Business Challenge 2021

A three day experiential learning programme.

Last week, all the Year 10 students were involved in a fun and authentic way to engage with experiential learning conducted by Young Enterprise Scheme NZ from Wellington. The BP business challenge is a unique three day experiential learning programme that develops skills, understanding and attitudes about how entrepreneurs start a business and how a successful business operates, and connects the students with their local business community.

The students develop their employability skills of:

  • Team work
  • Leadership
  • Presentation skills
  • Problem solving
  • Resilience
  • Communication

On the final day, the students presented their business ideas, creations and discoveries to a panel of judges. The judges, who were typically local business people, evaluated each team’s presentation and determined a winning team. All the students were awarded with a certificate from YES.
