The Trading Game

This term, Year 13 Business students: Darius, Kate, Carter, Thanh, Liam and Julia, have been busy putting their event management skills to the test by organising and running an Enterprise Day for all Year 9 students. 

The event took place last week in the Drama Studio. The class is required to run an event as part of their coursework for the National Diploma in Business qualification.  They decided to run an International Trading Game, where pupils were required to make as much money for their country as possible, using only the materials they were given. 

Some challenging trading conditions were added into the mix to challenge pupils to think on their feet. They had to deal with the effects on trading of Brexit, natural disasters and environmental fines for polluting the workspace!  

Well done to all year 9 who demonstrated effective teamwork, problem solving and business management skills and to Year 13 Business Students for planning and delivering successful, enjoyable and creative day.
