SCEP has had a distinctly different mood about it so far this academic year.

As we are still using the funding left over from the original project we are making sure when the project finally ends that there is a meaningful and ongoing legacy left in its place.

There are several big projects, with deep roots, that I’m hoping will live long past the project’s end.

(1) The Department Store Game. This is in its second incarnation and will continue to be refined until it’s playable within classes or across whole year groups.

(2) The Lend Lease Project. Currently due to run in four schools next term, with a further three awaiting confirmation. This project is not only popular with schools and students, but is hopefully going to lead to the formation of the Lend Lease Students’ Forum which could allow young people to be further involved in Lend Lease’s developments.

(3) See Me Website. This will be ready for populating and testing next term. The concept of which is to allow everyday people to upload their stories and / or advice for anyone not sure of what to do next in their career or life. predominantly for the 15-25yrs age range and will consist of hundreds of short, self-made videos that are searchable and viewable on phones as well as a PC. Lend Lease are looking into being the first company to upload videos. If the website is popular then the project has potential to be independently funded.

(4) Newham Business for Schools (NBfS). Though this is a working title, the idea is to evolve SCEP into a long-term business / schools / Newham forum that can continue to develop projects, make links and be of benefit to all parties.

Full Steam Ahead!
