Ready for Enterprise Workshop
'Ready for Enterprise’ is an exciting and innovative one day workshop designed for a whole year group in Years 7, 8 or 9.
‘Ready for Enterprise’ doesn’t just involve a game or theory; the students actually get to start and run a selection of REAL LIVE BUSINESSES.
Working in teams, the students will work through many of the business decisions facing a start-up business and then put them into practice. Students will market and sell their product to other pupils in the school. experiencing first hand the responsibility (and consequences) of business decisions.
This practical day is full of opportunities to enhance teamwork and leadership, be innovative, have fun and celebrate success.
We really hope that it will inspire some young people to start and run their OWN business when they finish their education. This is reflected in the comments from recent attendees:
I loved the idea of this workshop as it opened my eyes to how easy it is to start a business.
We actually got to see what it is like to run a business.
I liked the whole idea!
It wasn't just a normal day and we got to market and sell products.
It was enjoyable, a good experience and we learnt how to work as a team.
