Enterprise and Employability Challenge - Welsh Baccalaureate
Key Stage 4 - National / Foundation
Approved by WJEC
Here are activities and resources created by Ross Thomas, former Welsh Baccalaureate Development Officer, in partnership with the WJEC, to support you in delivering the coursework requirements for the new Welsh Baccalaureate 2015.
The resources consist of a challenge document for your assessed piece of work, along with a trial challenge which can help students prepare and develop skills for their project.
To help you experience business and the world of work you should work together with others in a team of 3-6 members and use skills and knowledge you have developed from researching Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales to design and develop an innovative product based on the collections at the museums. The product must be cost-effective, innovative and suitable for sale in the Amgueddfa Cymru shops.
Additional workshops to support your study are available. Please contact us for more details. Some workshops may be subject to charging.

Learning resource - Fragile? exhibition
Fragile? is an exhibition about ceramics. Ceramics are objects that are made out of clay and then fired. We often think of those objects as being fragile, but this exhibition challenges that idea as well as giving us an insight into the different kinds of ceramics being made today.
This learning resource is designed to support teachers and educators. It includes support in planning a visit, exploring the exhibition and suggestions for things to do back in the classroom. It is primarily aimed at Key Stage 2 and 3 pupils but can be easily adapted for older or younger students.
This resource is supported by the Colwinston Charitable Trust
The First World War Education Project
The National Library of Wales and National Museum Wales are leading a project to produce education resources for schools to commemorate the centenary of the First World War. As part of this project we are using items from the collections of both institutions to create digital teaching resources for Hwb.
