We recently held our annual enterprise day, ‘The Apprentice’ as part of the year 10 enterprise curriculum.
Held at the St Mary’s Centre in Clitheroe, a series of tasks were completed by the teams competing against each other to avoid being fired by our fantastic Lord Sugar – Adrian Hirst. Many thanks go to him for giving up his time to support the event and for giving the pupils a grilling – there were some nail biting times in the boardroom!
After creating outfits for an air steward, completing a financial task selling cakes and setting up a production line to produce rainmakers, teams were then required to use their innovative and promotion skills to remain in the competition and to be in with a chance of being ‘hired’.
After a very difficult interview session, team ‘Empire’ were hired, and team ‘Skirts and Shirts’ won the points competition.
Lord Sugar was very impressed with the levels of confidence and the ideas generated by all the pupils – well done to you all!
We’re looking forward to seeing if any of you make the TV show in the future!
