Year 12s get started on Young Enterprise firm
A group of sixth form students have formed a new Young Enterprise firm at the Academy.
A total of 17 Year 12 students chose to take part in Young Enterprise from a series of options.
The project was launched when the group met for the first time on Wednesday, September 12.
They met again today (Wednesday, September 19) to decide which group members will take on which job roles within their new company and to discuss their ideas of what their product should be.
The students will go on to sell their product at events including trade fairs.
The Young Enterprise company will be guided and supported by their Young Enterprise Business Advisors, Shaun Coleman and Patrick Tierney from RS Components, and their link teacher Alexandra Allan.
The idea of Young Enterprise is that it gives students the benefit of taking part in business instead of learning theory. Taking part can help students when they consider their career choices and teach them the true meaning of enterprise.
