Year 12 Business Trip
The week after half term Mrs Hewitt (Head of Business Studies) took 4 Year 12 students to City College Plymouth as part of the Next Steps programme. The students got a tour of the facility, met current degree students and the degree course leader whom they had many questions about courses available and links with organisations. They also got to use some business simulation software called SimVenture where the aim of the game is to run your own business, make sales by changing different parts of the business and ensure a profit is achieved. It was a great morning and we topped it off with a pit stop at Route 38 where we looked at customer service and of course sampled the food whilst doing so! Mrs Hewitt is now organising an over night trip to Thorpe park focusing on Marketing and Customer service that is currently open to our current Year 9, 11 and 12 students, for more information contact Mrs Hewitt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
