Students that have taken part in Young Enterprise will have a substantially better chance of being accepted on the university course of their choice and will have significantly improved their employability.
The programme involves setting up and running a business from September to June in Year 12. The students make all their own decisions, manage their own meetings, appoint directors to roles and sell their goods; this experience provides them with skills that will set them out from their peers in the competitive environment beyond School. The company will enter the Young Enterprise competition and compete with over 35,000 students nationally.
Woodbridge School companies have reached the national finals twice in the last three years, and three times in the last decade. In 2009, Blue Moon won more awards at the National Final than any other School.
So why take part in Young Enterprise at Woodbridge School? There is a very strong chance that the student will enjoy a taste of business success and improve their life chances.
