The Skills Service and a variety of partner agencies, worked with Y7 on the 'Ducks Enterprise Challenge'.
The challenge is to manage a business producing and selling origami ducks with the aim of making the greatest profit. Students worked in small groups, identifying a Managing Director, Accountant, Buyer, Quality Controller, Saleperson and the Production team before trading commenced. With a start up loan of £150 the accountant must pay the rent for the trading unit and pay salaries to the staff, the buyer must purchase resources to produce the ducks, the Production team and QA then produce high quality ducks which the salesperson must sell. The Managing Director must ensure their team is working together at all times. Well done Trinity for making the greatest profit in the business challenge.
