Lean Lego returned to All Saints Catholic School in November, where 153 keen Year Eight students were ready to tackle the challenge and make the most profit.
Move over Alan Sugar, you’ve got nothing compared to our savvy kids at All Saints!
During the day the students learnt how using different lean tools and delivering good quality vehicles to the customer helps them create profit for their company.
Competition was fierce as they all got their game faces on and teamed up to make the most profit but that wasn’t all they learnt, Lean Lego also teaches them team working, problem solving, continuous improvement, communication and managerial skills.
The kids had a great day, as did the teachers Lisa McFadden, form tutor, told us; “I really enjoyed the day, as did my form group. The staff who delivered it were really good and the students were brilliant and responded positively to absolutely everything - I was so proud of them. I’d definitely recommend for this to be used again in the future.”
Colleagues from Halewood who took part also found the day rewarding.
David Parry, Integrated Production Systems (IPS) Manager, told us, “The school are delighted with the impact that working with Jaguar Land Rover is having on the school. Students are getting access to great opportunities while inspiring them to study courses they might not have considered otherwise. They are working harder because they can see where their efforts might take them in the world of work.”
