Helps Pupils To...
As an optional extra, some schools donate the money raised from the pupils' businesses to a school charity or project. In this way it helps enhance social responsibility.
Ready For Business’ is primarily for pupils in Years 5 or 6. It has to be one of our favourite workshops, perhaps because we know it can really inspire young people
to be entrepreneurial, take responsibility for decisions and ultimately change their life for the better.
We like that it 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. Pupils will market and sell their product to other pupils in the school, experiencing first hand the responsibility (and consequences) of business decisions.
