Young Enterprise

Young Enterprise Business of the Year

Year 12 Young Enterprise students were part of the Young Enterprise Business of the Year award at Nobel school on 25th March. The students delivered a presentation about their product which is a healthy lifestyle educational training pack for primary schools. They have already made contact with 27 of our feeder schools and have been endorsed by the Mayor of Stevenage and Jim MacManus the Hertsfordhisre director of public health. The Year 12 students who formed their Young Enterprise company, Equilibrium, have been working together on this project since October 2014 with the help and guidance of their business mentor, David Brewer from the Lister Hospital. The students have also been working on gaining their level 2 qualification as ‘Health Champions’, and with one more week to go on the course, they are about to become qualified ‘Health Champions’ for our school. As a result of their level 2 training they were inspired to create their product for local primary schools in order to spread the message of health to a wider audience outside of our own school. At the award evening there were a number of schools from the local area and 5 categories. Our students won 2 of the 5 categories – the best trade stand and also the environmental award. We are immensly proud of them and wish them every success with the development of their business over the next few weeks and months!
