The Level 3 Business students as part of teams will be soon launching their very own enterprise businesses within College. These self-financed ventures will range from a walk in photo shoot industry, day trip organisers as well as teen health promoters.

All of this is a part of the students additional fifteen week Enterprise course, which will be helping the students grasp the more practical side of business. The course itself is designed to promote teamwork, debate as well as challenge the student’s resourcefulness when physically planning, running and evaluating their own business.

‘I always enjoy enterprise; it allows me to be involved in the more hands-on side of business which is a stronger aspect for me, opposed to academic essay writing. So it’s a real plus for the College to offer us the extra course.’ Stated Rebecca from the Level 3 BTEC course.
