This resource is aimed at key stage 4 students in enterprise / work-related learning.
It can form the basis for an enterprise activity in which students set up a school-based ‘Cash for Cans’ scheme.
The activities can be delivered in a variety of ways. For example, as separate, stand-alone activities or as part of a half-day or full-day enterprise activity.
The suggested time allocations should be considered as minimum requirements for each activity. It allows students to:
- Look at the process involved in the ‘Cash for Cans’ aluminium can recycling scheme;
- Listen to a range of personnel who work in the Novelis aluminium recycling plant and
- Consider the steps and structures needed to set up a recycling enterprise in school.
- Develop the process to recruit a team to organise and run a recycling scheme.
