Details

This Ofsted good practice example shows how a headteacher’s challenge to a group of students to raise the profile and desirability of studying languages in the school led to the creation of an award-winning social enterprise that benefits local businesses and helps raise students’ achievement.

The example shows how school–business links can have mutual benefits. The original group of 10 students called themselves ‘My Way’. This has become an umbrella term for a series of subject-related enterprises.
