As part of our Mount Pleasant Enterprises writing stimulus, Porthill and Flaxmill classes had a workshop lead by the Young Enterprise organisation. They completed a questionnaire to identify their business strengths and applied for jobs such as Marketing Manager or Events Organiser within their business. In their teams, they bought materials from a supplier to design and make their own bracelet to sell to a customer, in an attempt to make the most profit.
In the afternoon, they generated their own business idea and pitched to a ‘Dragon’s Den’ to gain investment. All in all, a great day was had by all and lots was learned about the business world. Look out for the amazing ‘Instathing’ – one of the inventions from our budding entrepreneurs - which will no doubt be hitting our stores very soon!
