A taste of ‘Business’ for Year 10


A group of 25 year 10 pupils were involved in the Project Business Workshop run by Young Enterprise in the Library on Monday, 30 January 2017.

This was a brilliant opportunity for them to work in teams in producing bracelets for sale.  A panel made up of Year 11 BTEC Business pupils and Nicki Picken from The Bushmills Inn made sure each team had bracelets made to a high standard, paid their wages and taxes before they could decide how much money they had left to buy more stock.  Of course, the ultimate aim was to make as much profit as possible!

Pupils listened attentively to Nikki Picken, Sales and Marketing Manager of The Bushmills Inn as she described their very successful marketing mix.  The teams then spent time deciding on a new product and its marketing mix before presenting their ideas to the whole group.

A big thank you to Martin Morgan and Vivienne Walsh from Young Enterprise who delivered this very useful and entertaining programme.
