The Think Big Workshop

Posted on: Sunday 29th September 2013

On Wednesday 18th September, the Year 9 Business Studies classes took part in a workshop called “Think Big School”. The workshop was run by Young Enterprise in conjunction with the communications company Telefonica. Its purpose is to encourage young people to think outside the box in the world of business and give them experience in real life situations.

Before the workshop began, everyone was split up into new groups and this was done with a simple exercise. Pupils had to sit at the table of the business which best matched the fact they had on the sheet of paper they were given.

The main aim of the workshop was to try and get pupils to work more as a team, and to try and solve dilemmas as efficiently as possible, even when put in teams with people they may not originally have chosen. All the pupils enjoyed the event and have said that it helped them to experience the day to day lives of successful entrepreneurs.
