On Wednesday 3rd December, Year 9 welcomed Jane from the Young Enterprise organisation to deliver a workshop all about Entrepreneurs. Jane brought with her Julie Wood, who owns Girl Friday NI, as her guest speaker.
The first session saw Year 9 identify what it meant to be an entrepreneur is. Julie proceeded to give a talk about how and why she set up her own business. It was interesting to relate all the information that we had learnt to a real entrepreneur. One of the key aspects of the session was to identify the main skills that were needed: creativity, decision making and problem solving. Afterwards, we had to put what we had learnt into practice as we created a new board game or App. Year 9 produced some excellent ideas in which we saw a WCB App produced alongside a Movie Trailer App.
It was an enjoyable morning and thanks must go to Jane and Julie for giving up their time to deliver the session.
