Go Global Enterprise Day

We’re very pleased to be able to launch our new resource, the ‘Go Global Enterprise Day’ pack. This brilliant new resource is designed to use alongside our board game ‘Go Global’, a copy of which was sent to all secondary schools in Wales last year. The pupils will work in groups and will be encouraged to put themselves in a “real” working environment, each taking on a specific role. Together they will design an international marketing plan and will end the day by presenting it to a panel of judges.
Use this resource to encourage your pupils to think Beyond Britain and to Go Global!
