10/02/2015 ‘PROJECT BUSINESS’ WORKSHOP FOR LORETO COLLEGE STUDENTS

All Year 10 students at Loreto College Coleraine enjoyed a half-day workshop entitled ‘Project Business’ on Tuesday 10th February, facilitated by Young Enterprise Northern Ireland.

The workshop saw the students working in groups to act as though they were running a mini business for the day, considering the aptitudes, challenges and risks involved in setting up and running a company. The students worked together to identify their own strengths and how these could be best deployed in a business situation. The workshop also gave them the opportunity to engage in teamwork, creative thinking and problem-solving, negotiation, decision-making, time-management, target-setting as well as developing their skills of communication and presentation. Year 13 students acted as mentors and suppliers of raw materials for the business activity.

Gail Hamilton of Young Enterprise Northern Ireland, who led the workshops, commended the Loreto College students on their enthusiastic and positive participation, while Mrs Sinead McNicholl, Citizenship and Employability Co-ordinator at Loreto College, commented that the workshop had been of great benefit to the students in showing how skills learned in school could be transferable to the world of work. Mr Michael James, Principal of Loreto College, commended the students, Mrs McNicholl and the workshop leaders from Young Enterprise NI on a very busy, stimulating and interesting day.
