Our school has been running the Young Enterprise Company Programme for over 10 years. Due to its popularity we have had 2 companies every year since 2005. Each company is made up of 11 members of the Lower Sixth and run over the course of one academic year, with the support of a volunteer adviser from business and the school Young Enterprise Link Teacher. The company members elect a board of directors, raise share capital and market and finance a product or service of their choice. During the course of the year, both companies have the opportunity to take part in a range of additional activities outside school such as Trade Fair markets, workshops, and the Young Enterprise Company of the Year Competition.
The Young Enterprise Company Programme is an exciting and rewarding experience. Participants have a unique chance of gaining a real understanding of how business works. They are given the opportunity to test out their ideas and skills, their ability to work as a team and cope with new and often challenging situations.
In addition, each participant takes the Certificate in Enterprise, awarded by the OCR Examination Board. Every year the results gained are excellent and a well-deserved recognition of our students’ hard work and commitment.
