The Ryman National Enterprise Challenge
The Ryman National Enterprise Challenge is the largest schools enterprise challenge in the UK,
Since launching in 2013 the challenge has been delivered to over 140,000 young people from over 200 schools from across the UK. The full year group programme has received high profile support from the likes of Theo Paphitis and Lord Sugar and businesses such as Ryman, OCR, Staffordshire University, Alton Towers, Gandys, 3AAA, Inspiring Learning and NCS. The full day challenge is delivered by our expert team of facilitators on a date to suit your school. We bring everything needed for the day so you can sit back and enjoy the challenge.
Using the power of video including a message from our ambassador Theo Paphitis, the students work on the challenges set by real life businesses. Guided by our expert team the day culminates in the students pitching their ideas for the chance to represent their school at our National Finals (the winning team from every school is guaranteed entry to our national finals). The finals day is a true celebration of enterprise. The students will get the opportunity to pitch their ideas again before exploring our finals venue, taking part in activities and having some much needed refreshments. The judging at this point is done by external business people and you have to win a judging pool to make it onto stage to pitch to our main judges at the finals.
The afternoon offers high quality entertainment, ‘The Final Challenge Pitches’ and a Q&A with our special guest ambassador all before the winning schools are announced. Win or lose the challenge helps to develop the key skills young people need for the world of work and shows them
there is no limit to what can be achieved.
