Year 6 Trip to UK Power Networks
On Tuesday 26th February, Year 6 pupils visited UK Power Networks, who own and maintain electricity cables and lines across London, the South East and East of England.
This business trip involved using teamwork and positivity to create a performance related bonus programme for employees.
The Skills Builder Partnership summarise the trip here: "The teams spent the first part of the challenge conducting some crucial research by interviewing volunteers about their roles, responsibilities and how they use Aiming High and Teamwork skills in their day-to-day jobs. They then went on an exciting tour which sparked their imagination for their project: to plan a new reward scheme for the employees of their host. They needed to aim high in their teams to make sure they could identify key goals and effective rewards. The volunteers were able to help them through this research stage with further interviews and examples from their personal experience. The day was rounded off by performance management meetings where the teams introduced staff to the new reward scheme and the volunteers identified the scheme they would like to see implemented."
