How it works...

The National Skills Challenge is brought to you by the creators of the UK's leading enterprise and employability competition; The National Enterprise Challenge


It is a costed event in the school/college and includes 4 fully trained facilitators who deliver the challenge brief and work with your students for the day (around your existing timetable). All learning resources (workbooks, pens, paper etc.) are included and the cost is inclusive of our travel; anywhere in the UK! 


The cost to take part is £1650 + VAT for up to 120 students and includes your entry for your winning team to attend the National Final in April 2020.


Once you register your interest, we will work with you to find a suitable date to come into the college and deliver our workshop. Once the workshop is finished, we will provide a finals pack detailing what preparation is needed for the final. Your winning team will be competing against colleges from up and down the country and pitching their ideas to leading business professionals and also enjoying a great day at the very impressive Plexal Park, Here East, London.
