School Enterprise Package

Boulders Indoor Climbing Centre is a successful local company that understands the significance of educating children and teenagers about the importance of local businesses. The impact they have on both the community and Cardiff as a young, growing, finance capital cannot be underestimated. We also understand the benefit of taking pupils out of a classroom environment and placing them into the centre of a busy business to experience it firsthand in a fun and interactive way.

That’s why we’re offering a brand new package targeted directly at local schools who are studying courses such as ‘Business Studies’, ‘Welsh Baccalaureate’, ‘Economics’, ‘Tourism and Leisure’, or even schools who want younger pupils to learn about the framework and function of a growing local business, right in the middle of a thriving community. Younger year groups are welcome to book a session as well as both GCSE and A Level classes. The great thing about this package is that Boulders can tailor the session to fit your exact requirements, even to fit in with your curriculum or exam objectives.

The 2 hour or 2 ½ hour session includes an exclusive talk from one of our senior members of management which covers how our business is run and what we have had to do to ensure growth, development & survival in the market place. The talk can also cover business decision making, strategy, and practice.

The session will also include a focused workshop that is entirely interactive. Pupils will come up with new business ideas and present them to the group - the challenge would be based around how they could market the new idea to a local and national audience. This workshop can also be altered to include your identified aims and objectives. After Boulders briefs the pupils on the task, it will be lead by the pupils and the teachers.

Finally, the session ends with an hour climbing taster for the pupils to actually experience what we offer as a company. We can also add half an hour ‘team tasks’ to focus on things such as team work, co-operation, trust, and communication.

Please take a look at the example timetable below for a better idea of how the session is structured.
