Year 12 BTEC Business pupils glean useful information from local businesses

A big thank you to Mr Mark Kane, Kane’s Butchers and Mrs Louise McLean, Designerie, Bushmills, for supporting the Business department in our school.

The Year 12 BTEC Business class enjoyed a visit to both local businesses on Thursday 19th January to complete research for their core unit ‘Enterprise in the Business World’.

The pupils found it interesting that Kane’s Butchers’ unique selling point is that they are the only independent butchers who are prepared to deliver right across Northern Ireland.  

Pupils learned that Designerie is an example of a social enterprise, passionate about supporting local arts and crafts, and are providing an opportunity for local artisans and crafters with a route to market and an opportunity to showcase their products.
