3 Yes - Young Enterprise Scheme (3YES)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs B. Hoy

All learners who choose this course will participate in the Lion Foundation ‘Young Enterprise Scheme’ which is a nationwide competition involving creating a product or service and taking it to market.   All work is done in groups and learners complete a set of challenges alongside their assessment work to win prize money to support these business plans.

 

An external will be offered for those wishing to gain an endorsement or further credits in business.
