Enterprise at Key Stage 5
The aim of This Way Up? is not necessarily to solve problems but to keep asking questions…
This Way Up? provides a progressive programme that enables students to develop practice of critical thinking and interest in the role of Global Citizenship for the 21st Century.
A unique Enterprise Education programme for KS5 students, addressing the roles that community, charity and industry play in shaping International Development. This Way Up? challenges students to practise at becoming international change-makers through developing an in-depth understanding of the International Development sector. For younger years, take a look at KS3-4 programme.
Building Empathy & Critical Thinking
With so much coverage of international crises and development needs drawn to our attention through media coverage, This Way Up? will not only reveal more about the workings behind the development sector but will also illustrate some of the problems and controversies that accompany global aid, including challenging stereotypes of poverty. Students will learn how the direction of their efforts, as well as industry practice can serve to affect the ultimate path of human progress.
“It was a great opportunity to better understand how complex and important a topic international development is. The presentations challenged our perception of charity work and modern stereotypes of populations in less economically developed countries”

Learning between the UK & Tanzania
This programme has been built upon our expertise and knowledge as part of our ongoing work in East Africa.
We offer UK students a unique opportunity to further develop their interest in international affairs through participation in our annual international student challenge, Creative Disruptors. This challenge is open to student teams in the UK and Tanzania and continues their learning of global perspectives, innovation for sustainability and the values of humanity.
Please contact us for further information and a programme example.
The Wider Benefit
As well as enhancing key employment skills students will come away with a broader perspective of their impact on the world in preparation for post-school ventures, as well as thoughts for future career choices. In addition, students will practise sharpening their critical thinking skills when examining and addressing international development efforts and community issues.
Through our workshops in Tanzania, we have built strong partner links with schools overseas enabling all of our students to have the opportunity to share their skills through competitive enterprise challenges. Please contact us for more details at this stage.
