Re: Young Enterprise Programme

Dear Parent/Carer

Your son/daughter chose to take part in the Young Enterprise Programme supported and sponsored by RS Components.

The purpose of the Young Enterprise programme is based upon ‘Learning By Doing’. Students this year were given the opportunity to learn about business in a practical way and at the same time discover what it is like to start a Business Enterprise.

Over the course of this year, students attended many events and worked effectively in teams to raise finance, market research, develop a product, manage and promote their company and sell to the public at many Trade Events.

They won two key awards, for Best Sales and Marketing and Best Trade Stand and now have an opportunity to take part alongside Young Enterprise Companies from across the UK and compete in the HSBC Young Enterprise & Innovation Awards, starting at regional level.

Therefore you son/daughter will be required to attend the Area Finals at Weatherbys, Wellingborough on 18th March. We will depart from the Academy at 2.30pm and return approximately 9.30pm, CBA will provide a small snack for students followed by a buffet which will be held at the event. As this event is after school, students will be required to arrange their own transport home from Corby Business Academy on our return.

Should you have any queries or require additional information, I can be contacted on  I look forward to working with your son/daughter.
