BTEC Business classes at Dunluce School took part in the Young Enterprise Northern Ireland’s ‘Enterprise in Action’ programme last week.
Funded by the Department of Education Northern Ireland, the programme is designed to inspire innovation and entrepreneurial attitudes.
Through Enterprise in Action students actively engage in an enterprise challenge, by making a prototype product, as they develop their understanding of key business concepts through practical activities and the use of ICT.
The programme was facilitated by Vivienne Walsh from Young Enterprise.
Valerie Ingram, Chief Executive of Young Enterprise Northern Ireland, commented: “Enterprise in Action is a great way for students to gain a practical,
hands-on insight into the world of business. We hope that this will inspire some of the young people here today to start their own business in the future, or at least to become enterprising employees. No matter what career they choose, the knowledge that they gain through this programme will set them apart from their peers.”
Young Enterprise is Northern Ireland’s foremost business and enterprise education charity.
