Y10 Exploring entrepreneurship
Before half term, Y10 students learnt about the UK job market salaries and how the UK tax system works. The students considered how much they would need to earn to have their chosen future lifestyle and what jobs could offer the salaries they sought.
The students then worked in small business teams to create a branded drink, they had to decide their target market and work out their profit margins. Each team member selected a role based on their own skillset and preferences. They then had to come up with the concept, work out the costings, pitch their drink for sale to the other teams and use set funds to purchase other’s drinks for remarketing. The team that made the most profit won.
