The Global Enterprise Challenge (GEC) is an annual business enterprise initiative run by Broadclyst Community Primary School (BCPS) in Devon, UK. Each year, students aged between 9 and 15 participate, in teams across more than 20 different countries.

The GEC was developed by BCPS in 2014, when it won a competition run by Microsoft within its Showcase School community across the world. It incorporates a wide range of business skills while encompassing many different elements of the school curriculum, putting the childrens learning into a real-life context and using Microsoft Office 365 technology to allow worldwide collaboration and creativity. 

 

Global Enterprise Challenge 2019 winners announced

It has been a wonderful experience collaborating with all of the participating schools over the past year and after deliberating long and hard we can now announce that the winning teams are: 

Primary Category: Table Pocket from Weitzman School, Israel.
Secondary Category: Galaxie Games from Notre Dame School, Dominican Republic.

Congratulations to the winning teams and to everyone for all your hard work. It has been a wonderful experience collaborating with all of the participating schools over the past 6 months.  We hope the children have had an engaging and valuable experience from participating in the project and have gained some understanding of the business world.  Many of the schools taking part have had many challenges to overcome, however down to the incredible effort and dedication put in by the teaching staff the Global Enterprise Challenge has been a huge success once again. 

The GEC is about 5 months from start to completion. The challenge is organised into a timeline with set stages to help participating schools stay on track and so that children from across the different countries are able to share their ideas at each stage of the project with each other.
