5. How can I complete my missions whilst staying safe during COVID-19?
It’s very important to stay safe during your participation in the Enterprise Adventure.
Although this is an app on your phone, it is also a very practical real-world experience. Some missions will require you to talk to various people (such as friends, family, potential customers for your business, etc). You should exercise caution, just like you normally would in these situations (particularly if you are talking to strangers).
Due to Coronavirus, it is extra important to stay safe and you must make sure that you take all the necessary precautions to do so.
Here are our top tips for staying safe:
1️⃣ **Follow your own government’s guidance around what is allowed during the pandemic**
If you are in lockdown then you must remain indoors, even if the Enterprise Adventure app encourages you to explore your community or talk to people. It is up to you to find creative ways to complete the missions AND adhere to the regulations!
For example: For missions 2 and 8 you could carry out your interviews by telephone or WhatsApp/SMS rather than in person if needed.
2️⃣ **Follow the World Health Organisation (WHO) guidance around safety during the pandemic**
This includes social distancing and the wearing of masks in certain cases. You can find out more about this by clicking here.
6. When are the deadlines?
Complete as many missions as you can by 13th December 2020 to be eligible for prizes.
Complete all 10 Missions for the chance to win the biggest prizes!
We recommend trying to complete 1 mission per week but it’s totally up to you how quickly you want to do them. You can go faster or slower!
Therefore, we encourage you to sign up by Sunday 4th October to allow yourself plenty of time to complete all 10 missions by 13th December 2020.
Of course, you can still sign up for Enterprise Adventure after Sunday 4th October, you’ll just need to progress through the missions a little bit more quickly!
7. Do I need to pay to participate?
The Enterprise Adventure is completely free to use! There are no sign up costs and no in-app costs. The only cost you will incur is the mobile data required to access the internet. If you don't have much mobile data, we encourage you to use WiFi when you can!
8. Can I take a look at the Enterprise Adventure app without signing up?
9. I am a teacher and would like my students to participate in the Enterprise Adventure. How can I arrange this?
We would love to welcome your students to the Enterprise Adventure. Simply send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will guide you on how to get your students involved!
10. Can we participate as a team with multiple members?
The Enterprise Adventure is meant for students to participate individually and independently.
Alongside the 10 real-world missions that you will complete through the app, there are also lots of opportunities for self-assessment and reflection on participants' actions and learnings. We believe that this is a process that you will enjoy and benefit most from if you engage in it individually.
Therefore, while you can consult your family, friends and classmates throughout the different activities, we would encourage each of you to create your own accounts (with separate email addresses) to access the Enterprise Adventure app individually. This will allow you to engage in an overall better learning experience.
