College Enterprise

Enterprise at Oakfield encompasses a range of young person led learning. A key focus of Enterprise is giving learners the autonomy and agency in their own learning.  As part of the Enterprise curriculum; learners engage with an array of key skills and qualities which prepare our learners to be young adults in the wider community; learning the skills they need for further learning and life.

Skills include;

  • Independence
  • Team work
  • Communication and interaction skills
  • Customer relations
  • Budgeting and money management
  • Time management including meeting deadlines
  • Following instructions and giving instructions

Learners work with others in their Enterprise team to develop a business plan. Learners develop the business from designing a product, identifying key roles and responsibilities, through to the production and selling of their chosen product. College learners stated that;
