In this first Live Brief, students’ knowledge, skills and focus will be tested through a fictional new housing development project. This first challenge booklet is broken down into three separate tasks that focus on skills from the three core curriculum areas: maths, English and science.
Each challenge also includes a ‘Career focus’ page that looks in detail at the job role students are about to take on. This information includes role specifics, key skills and job requirements.
