How does it work?

In schools, for Year 6 and 7 classes:

  • Teachers can run Maker Kids Club in the classroom (one hour per week for 14 weeks).
  • Enrolment includes:
    • Individual access to the online training platform for every student and the teacher for the duration of the course,
    • detailed lesson plans with all links to the curriculum outlined, and
    • online support.
  • A typical lesson includes:
    • watching a training video (6-20 minutes),
    • discussing the content following the lesson plan, and
    • student group work to complete the activity sheet accompanying the lesson.
  • Week 10 is nominally launch week (though it’s up to each school when they want to run their market)
    • This typically lines up with the end of school term.
    • We’ve found it’s great to run the launch market on the same day as end-of-term assembly so parents can attend too.
  • Lessons 11 to 14 are typically completed in the following term:
    • These lessons cover reflection, money management, updating plans and celebration.
    • Teachers can opt to compress the course by doing four weeks with 2 lessons, so the course can be completed in one 10-week term.
  • See our Success Path for an overview of the stages and lessons
