Foundation for Jobs Enterprise Challenge launch

I’m Amanda Olvanhill and I’m Head of Employability for Foundation For Jobs. We’re at Inspire to Learn and we’re doing an enterprise activity with young people from Redcar and Cleveland schools They’re developing team skills, coming up with creativity, innovation and working together to achieve a final product. My name’s Harry Webster and I’m from St Peter’s School in South Bank. Today we’ve been introduced to entrepreneurs and how they run their solo business It’s actually harder than you think and although it looks easy it’s a lot more complicated because you need to know what your finances are and how much the end products cost. I hope that they will take the message home that
they can start their own business. We’ve had thoughts on chocolate in a tea bag, we’ve had boxes of joy I’m really looking forward to seeing their final presentations. I’ve actually been the manager. We came up with a variety box, it’s called the dream box There’s dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate and we’re going to make it look like a present. This is launched on Global Entrepreneurship Week and the challenge goes on until National Careers Week so they’re going to be our ambassadors back in school to encourage more of their classmates to get involved in our Enterprise Challenge.
