Since its launch, thousands of pupils took part in The PIE Project’s activities to develop key enterprise transferable skills through STEM activities.
The PIE Project
The Primary Inspiration through Enterprise Mission is to build effective business education links to support the development of young people and strengthen communities.
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.
