The PIE Project

The Primary Inspiration though Enterprise Mission is to build effective business education links to support the development of young people and strengthen communities.

Since its launch, thousands of pupils took part in The PIE Project’s activities to develop key enterprise transferable skills through STEM activities.


Delivering enterprise and STEM challenges in partnership with schools and business underpinned by formal vocational enterprise qualifications. We will provide a clear and consistent framework that enables young people to learn in a fun and engaging approach recognising strengths and allows business to use its expertise to bring education to life.


We aim to help young people aged 6-16 years old to realise their ambitions and raise aspirations through providing real life enterprise experiences delivered holistically in association with parents, pupils, teachers and businesses to ultimately ensure future work forces are aware of emerging opportunities and adequately prepared for the world of work.


Better equipped young people with key soft and transferable skills who are aware of and prepared for the world of work, alongside completing a vocational qualification pathway.
A clear framework that provides local businesses the opportunity to positively influence and engage with schools. Improved community cohesion through the engagement and involvement of shopkeepers that also provide volunteering opportunities for parents to develop skills. Out of term activities providing parents and pupils additional engagement opportunities addressing societal issues. Upskilling teachers to better understand enterprise through mini-MBAs.

Preparing school children for jobs of the future!

The PIE Challenge

The BIG PIE Challenge offers pupils the opportunity to really understand and experience business by helping to create and run an enterprise based on profit. Each pupil develops a CV, undertakes an interview alongside identifying their strengths and addressing weaknesses. In all, young people are provided with all of the necessary information and support to help realise ambitions and raise aspirations.

PIE’oneers are volunteers that are assigned to each school to help carry out the activities in each stage.


Schools receive activity pack

Every school will receive a pack that will provide schools with all the resources needed to complete the challenge.


Stage 1 Commences

Stage 1 will consist of two activities. The first activity will get students to build the best glider that can reach the furthest distance. Next, the pupils will be involved in a coding game, with the aim of trying to pass as many levels as possible.


Stage 2 Commences

If your team is able to progress onto stage 2, you will have the chance to create your own product or service using a £100, interest free loan. Pupils will get to work with other local businesses and entrepreneurs to try and sell their product.
