Introduction To International Trading For Year 7

Year 7 students from Corby Business Academy and Brooke Weston were given an introduction to international trading during an Enterprise Day.

Young Enterprise East Midlands ran the event which was organised to help give students an insight into the intricacies of international trading.

Exports and imports, marketing, selling and advertising dominated the day as part of Young Enterprise's Our World programme.

Students were split into groups and took on the role of international companies, trading with each other to make the most profit.

Tracey Jones, a business volunteer delivering the programme, said: "The motto of Young Enterprise is to introduce students to the world of business through practical sessions."

Year 7 student Thomas Morby, said: "We learned a lot about trading and how companies from different countries trade with each other.

"We also learned about interest rates and the financial side of trading and so it will make understanding the news easier."

As well as the activities at CBA an identical programme was being delivered at sister school Brooke Weston College.

Young Enterprise's mission is to inspire and equip young people to learn and succeed through enterprise and its vision is that all young people have the opportunity to gain personal experience of how business works, understand the role it plays in providing employment and creating prosperity, and be inspired to improve their own prospects, and the competitiveness of the UK.
