Enterprise and Employability

At Blue Caterpillar we understand that eduction needs to do more than just get students through exams. With this in mind, we offer a number of workshops which develop and hone employability skills, getting them ready for the working world.

Interview Skills

Young people find it hard to get it right in job or university interviews. Blue Caterpillar run 1 hour workshops for up to 15 students which cover the ‘need to know’ elements and give coaching for young people, allowing them to begin to be the best that they can be.
Working on a 5 lesson day, we could train up to 75 students a day on a rolling programme. We could see an entire year group over 2 to 3 days.

Big Challenge

This is a fun day with amazing learning points. The day runs as a tournament where students compete in teams, to carry out tasks which hone and develop key competences: communication skills, creativity, adaptability, team work, time management, resilience and self confidence.

Gifted and Talented

Every school has them; the especially able who need to be stretched and challenged. We run programmes which combine all of the above to develop those young people who need to be given more to bring out more.

Talk The Talk

Developed by Tim Benton, in conjunction with Four Acre Trust, Talk The Talk is an exciting initiative which allows students to develop presentation skills vital for school and the world of work. Over the course of a day, up to 25 students will learn and practice key communication skills leading to presenting a talk on a topic of their choice.
Tim is no longer actively involved, however Blue Caterpillar heartily endorses and recommends the Talk The Talk programme.
