Northfield Students Win Business Competition at Stockton Sixth Form College
One group of year 10 and one group of Year 9 students traveled to Stockton Sixth Form College to take part in a Business competition, which was run by the ICAEW (Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales). They worked in teams and had to develop ideas for a new business. They were competing against a range of local schools and both Northfield groups did extremely well.
They presented their business ideas to a panel of judges from ICAEW who were impressed by how professional their ideas were and gave them first prize. As well as communication skills, the students had to work out the finances for their new businesses and be creative with business and product names. Overall the students gained a great deal from this event that they can take back to their business courses.
