Pupils are pledged £5 from the Fiver bank and have one month to set up a mini business and create a product or service they can then sell or deliver at a profit whilst engaging with their local community. Pupils are in full control of the profits they earn and get to decide what to spend them on.

Fiver Challenge provides a great opportunity for pupils to develop key skills including managing money, improving their confidence and communication skills, important to living in modern day Britain. Plus it’s great fun! The challenge is available to every young person aged 5-11 years, offering equality across all abilities, providing an opportunity to help to raise their aspirations and develop positive attitudes to work at an early age.
