The Fiver Challenge...
Helps to instil resilience from a young age by challenging pupils to work outside their normal parameters
Builds early foundations for pupils to develop core skills including team work, problem solving and communication
Introduces pupils to an understanding of finance, budgeting and the importance of money
Provides opportunities for pupils to become involved within their local community network
- Includes a national competition which everyone can enter – prizes include a trip to London for the awards ceremony
But don’t just take our word for it! We evaluate everything we do to make sure that our programmes help young people develop their skills and that we are providing you with the right support to make the Challenge a success.
