Over the past term our Sixth Formers have been taking part in the Young Enterprise scheme, this is a national charity who motivate young people to engage in the changing world of work by equipping them with the work skills, knowledge and confidence they need to succeed.
Our Sixth Form students have been busy planning, developing and running their Enterprise schemes as part of the YE programme:
- Paris Group made personalised cards for Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day. They also held a ‘Penalty Shoot Out Against Staff’ event.
- Dublin Group ran a Gaming Club with a pop up tuck shop
- Beijing Group ran a Jacket Potato stall for staff.
Students worked together in their teams to develop their start-ups from scratch raising funds and making a profit. All aspects of running an enterprise have been developed and led by the Sixth Form teams with each group member taking responsibility for key roles such as finance, marketing, administration, production and sales.
The groups will be presented with trophies for the successful completion of the programme on May 23, by Paul Colvin Co-Chair Local Volunteer Board and Jenny Batt from the Volunteer Centre Sutton.
