Year 10 BTEC Enterprise students welcomed Mrs Paula Mickley to the Academy on Friday 22nd March
Students following the Y10 BTEC Enterprise course benefited from the support and insight of local entrepreneur Mrs Paula Mickley during her visit to the academy on Friday 22 March 2019. Mrs Mickley, of Today Publications Ltd, discussed the internal and external factors that affect her business and how the company tries to respond to these. Various examples were shared, allowing students to complete a section of a business report as part of their coursework requirements.
It was a very inspirational talk and gave students a greater understanding of running and operating a business. Discussion also involved the hot topic of the moment – Brexit.
Both students and myself would like to pass on our thanks again to Mrs Mickley, both for the visit, and the provision of product and marketing materials.
