The Young Enterprise Company Programme, open to pupils in S6, is not a business game but an actual 'hands-on' business experience and competition held over a full academic year. Through YE Programme, students discover how a company functions and develop new skills, such as working as a team, leadership, making presentations, sales and marketing techniques, forward planning, financial control, sourcing raw materials at low costs, taking responsibility and prioritising customer satisfaction.
Coco-Cola Real Business Challenge
Within Business Management, pupils in S3 participate in a work-related learning activity where they tackle a business task set by Coca-Cola European Partners. Pupils work in teams to design a unique product, and compete with other groups in school; winners then go forward to a regional competition. The challenge is a fun and engaging way for students to develop a range of enterprise skills that will give them a competitive edge in today's job market.
