Who Dunit!

A fun challenge that will give students the chance to test and show some of the skills and qualities they’ve developed during school. For example communication, team work, resilience or problem solving. By testing these skills and qualities this will prepare them for the rest of their school years and working life.

Duration: 5 X 1 hour sessions (whole day event)

Method: In Person

Year Group(s): Year 7 to 13

Gatsby Benchmarks: 1, 3, 4, 5, 8.

CDI Framework: Grow, Explore, Manage, Create.

Room Requirements: 2 large rooms and up to 6/8 classrooms. An individual overview of the day will be provided.

By the end of the session students will:

  • Understand the Importance of following instructions and what can happen if you don’t (the consequences).
  • Understand what we mean by ‘stereotyping’ and why we should challenge it.
  • Be able to identify different types of body language, recognise their own and how to interpret other people’s.
  • Practice different communication methods (emails, text messages, social media, press releases) and understand why using them correctly is important.
  • When talking about things be able to provide good examples and back things up.
  • Take responsibility for an activity and show their leadership potential.
  • Work together as a team to coordinate activities, share information, pull together their conclusion, reach an agreed final decision and then practice their presentation skills.


“A great day with the students who engaged in solving a crime based on a true story. It was great to see the students use their verbal and written communication skills. In addition there were some natural leaders within the groups and then it was helpful to see who the thinkers and problem solvers were. The students were keen to see if their skills had allowed them to reach the right conclusion and find the culprit who committed the crime.”

Eleanor Cameron, Careers and Quality Manager @ EBP South.
