We have just returned from the International Business Festival with the Y12 BTEC students. During the day they had to design, prepare and undertake a business pitch for a new shampoo. The competition consisted of 5 teams, with their team being the youngest. Our students won the pitch with the judge stating it was engaging, utilised a variety of key business terms such as market research, target market and USP, and made the judge want to purchase the new shampoo. They noted that they worked well as a team and were very impressed with Kieron Bowie ‘who came out of his shell’.
The organisers stated that they were a credit to us as teachers and the school, and were extremely complimentary about the school.
They also got to meet Jamie Carragher who congratulated them as winners.
