10X (formerly Tenner) is our National Enterprise Challenge, helping students to develop an enterprising mindset and prepare for the world of work.
Students are pledged £10 from the 10X Bank and use this start-up capital to get their enterprise off the ground. They have one month to set up their business – coming up with an idea of a product to service they can sell. During the challenge, students are encouraged to think ethically and sustainably and have the opportunity to make a positive contribution to society.
In 2019/20 more than 20,000 11 to 19 year olds took part in the challenge.
Learning outcomes from 10X Challenge
90% of teachers agreed that 10X Challenge contributes to the school’s careers programme
“The standard academic curriculum can be restrictive in allowing these entrepreneurial skills to flourish,
as students focus on what is needed to answer exam questions etc. The Challenge has given them an outlet to let their skills develop.” – Teacher
“A great chance to experience what it’s like to run a business and gives a great challenge to manage time, money, resources and orders” – Student
