Young Enterprise

Young Enterprise is a national organisation which enables Year 10 and Year 12 students to gain business experience through the running of a company within their school. A company is founded by students buying shares and then electing various students into different positions within the company, such as Managing Director, Marketing Director or Sales Director, depending on the size and product of the company. The company has weekly meetings which are attended by members of the company, a volunteer Business Advisor appointed by Young Enterprise and a Link Teacher from the school. At the end of the year, each company attends a Regional Trade Fair where they present their company in competition with other companies from other local schools.
