Young Enterprise (YE) is a popular activity, which gives Year 10 students the chance to be a company director for one year.
As well as learning life skills such as…
- Team work
- Problem solving
...there is the opportunity to MAKE MONEY!
There are openings for people with all kinds of talent
- Marketing and selling
- Organisational flair
- Financial acumen
- Creative ideas
- People skills
Students will learn a lot about themselves (and their friends), try out the world of business and have fun. Young Enterprise is not a business game - the students form real companies. The company directors have to raise share capital, develop and market a product, attend weekly board meetings, operate a bank account, write a company report and finally liquidate their company.
The YE year culminates with a county and national competition, which gives everyone the chance to develop his or her public speaking and presentation skills and to compete alongside YE companies from across the county.
