Year 7 Business and Enterprise Day

Year 7 Business and Enterprise Day

On Tuesday 24th November the year 7‘s took part in a business and enterprise day run by Learning to Work and sponsored by Bracknell Forest Homes.

The students worked collaboratively in teams creating business plans and developing their mini-van businesses. Students utilised many skills over the course of the day such as communication, team work, literacy, numeracy to name but a few. Students at the end had to present their business ideas to Bracknell Forest Home employees of which a number were of an outstanding calibre.

The day was a great success with students leaving with a real buzz about who had the best mini-van business.
