College & Business Work Together to Develop Enterprise Skills in Young People

Thursday 19th March saw Exmouth Community College host a Celebration Day for The Enterprising Futures Project, which has been funded by a £10000 grant from Devon County Council and delivered by the Business Department at the college.

Back in January staff from local primary schools attended an enterprise training day at the college, Post 16 students completed training as Enterprise Ambassadors and almost 700 students from Year 6 & Year 9 completed various enterprise activities. Since then students at Exeter Road, Marpool, St Peters, Lympstone and Bassetts Farm have been busy setting up and running their own businesses, support by school staff and Post 16 students from the college.

Before Thursday celebration event, students had to produce a business report, while on the Thursday they had trade stand to tell their story.  During the morning they had a number of interviews at these stands with the judging panel before having to give a formal presentation to the assembled crowd of fellow students, parents, governers, teachers, Post 16 students are various members of the local business and political community including Mr Bill Nash, the mayor.

The judging panel of Mr Gary Nichols (Optimise 4), Mrs Victoria Gage (Devon County Council),  Mr Ian McQueen (Big Fire & Chairman of Exmouth Chamber of Commerce), Mr Nigel Wilkinson (WNW Digital), Mr Col Hancock (Young Enterprise) and Mr Steven Hawkins (RBS/Natwest) had a very difficult task in selecting the winners, eventually selecting St Peters as the overall winners, with each of the other schools picking up at least one category award.    It was then left to the judges, together with Mr A K Alexander (College Principal) and Councillor Chapman to to present the awards and prizes to winning teams.

The next stage in project will be able to get more local schools involved by establishing an Exmouth Enterprise Education board in the summer term, which will further strengthen the links between education and the local business community.

On Friday 20 March, myself and some other students from Year 7 and 8 met up for a Cultural Workshop. We started the day by getting to know each other. We found out about hobbies, favourite foods, siblings and background. The students involved in the workshop have connections with lots of different countries and even spoke the languages.The languages spoken were Latvian, French, Spanish, Thai, Polish, Hungarian, Syrian, Fillipino (Tagalog) and Turkish. Some  of the group could speak three languages! By the end of the day we had created presentations about our cultures. It was interesting and fun to learn about the cultures of other students from around the world.
