Enactus Summer Action Competition 2019

Enactus UK Summer Action Competition 2019

Author: Takura Sibanda

Date: 31st August 2019

The Enactus UK year starts the day after National Competition in mid-April, but all too often teams only really begin to work together and take action from the academic term in September/October. This means that a large amount of the year is not taken advantage of- 142 days to be exact.

The Summer Action agenda intends to change that, and enable every team to understand what they can do over summer and exactly how to do it to make sure they have the very best start to the new term in September and to welcome in your new members!

Over summer there are 4 areas of summer action, all teams need to work on, and they are 

  • Support Network 
  • Team Development/ Recruitment
  • Projects
  • Finance

All of these areas will then be compiled into the final submission which is sent in at the end of August.

This past summer action was memorable because the Teesside team managed to compete effectively and get recognised by Enactus UK. Th team went through a tough summer with members who departed which made it more challenging, but resilience set in and the remaining members stayed committed and delivered a successful summer action portfolio.

At the end of the competition Teesside were recognised as one of the highly commended teams that performed exceptionally well throughout the year.

A big well done goes out to the dynamic duo of Takura and Vishak.

Enactus UK Training Weekend 2018

Enactus UK Training Weekend 2018

Author: Takura Sibanda

Date: 3rd – 4th November 2018

On the 3rd and 4th of November the Teesside team attended the annual Enactus UK training weekend held at Kingswood Dearne Valley in Doncaster.

This weekend is one of the biggest in the Enactus calendars as all the Enactus UK team undergo training from Enactus UK staff and Enactus Alumni Members on the project and innovation streams which aim to improve the sustainability of their projects and provide them with insight into making creative events and activities that can further their team growth, income and project impact.

This year the Teesside team also presented in the ASDA Youth Poverty & Inequality ITC which gave the team early presentation practice.

There was also a careers fair that took place after the training sessions where companies like BiC, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Unilever and Visa were in attendance networking with Enactus students and informing them of upcoming roles for graduates and placement internships.

Alongside the training sessions the teams were given access to attend a variety outdoor activities like climbing, archery, and camp fire-making. In the evening of the 1st day all the teams were treated to an evening dinner and disco which definitely improved people’s spirits.

The opening and closing ceremonies of the training weekend were very motivating and a massive congratulations to all the teams that won awards during the summer action. 

A special thank you goes out to Kingswood Dearne Valley for hosting all the Enactus teams and Enactus UK for planning the event
