Princes Trust Business


A group of Level 3 Business students took part in the Challenge 500 programme which is led by The Princes Trust. In doing this challenge the students slightly diversified and raised money for current causes and appeals namely the Haiti Earthquake Appeal.

Many skills were realised during this project which aimed to engage with students and allow them to use their entrepreneurial flair in setting up mini projects to achieve their target, this also allowed team building, time management and research and communication skills to be expanded.

As a result of the initial challenge – an idea to produce a college dvd has been snapped up by the Marketing Department. Cherrelle and Danica, the stars and producers of the dvd –have impressed the Principal and Senior Management with their product, that it will be showcased and used as a recruitment tool on the College website and sent out to potential students and their families.

The following is a list of activities and the students who led them.

Well done to all involved!
