Year 10 Enterprise Studies

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms K. Browning.

In 10ENT you will be challenged to set up and run your own small-scale business. Teamwork and the ability to work well with other people are critical skills to have in business (and life!) so it will be a strong focus in this course. You'll think creatively, develop product ideas, talk and write in formal business situations, learn how to record income and expenses, develop your organisational skills, manage the stress of deadlines, push yourself outside your comfort zone, and get a taste of what it’s like to run a business.

[Note: You will be expected to work in randomly selected teams for many of the tasks we do - so you should only choose this course if you're willing to work with a wide range of people.]
