    I am starting a new school in September, where they start GCSEs in year 9. However, they would like the actual content to be taught from year 10 and use year 9 as a form of introduction to business/enterprise. Has anyone run any successful enterprise challenges or have any possible ideas for this please?

    I am doing this at the moment. I have three units. The first is a basic marketing unit focussing on market research but also including the market mix and segmentation. The second relates to finance. I cover both personal finance, it's not needed but they love it, plus CFF, Break even and P and L plus calculating revenue and costs. The final unit is an enterprise unit which includes simple business organisation, entrepreneurship and business plan creation. From that they have the skills to run their own enterprise at the end of the summer term. I ask them to present their plan and if I think it will work I lend them £10.00 to fund the start up. I always get it back as I make sure that the businesses will work!! Then in Year 10 I stat from the beginning of the syllabus. Some topics will be replicated but then I just revisit those and spend less time.

    I know its probably too late fr you both but take a look at this, which I think might interest you......

    We are running a free new programme for 12-16yr olds with a simple aim:

    To create a generation of 16 year olds who have created their own personal revenue stream of £16000 per year.

    It’s called ‘Startup Sherpa 16x16’.

    Please take a look at our website and get in touch if you're interested.
