The Sixth Form College, Solihull and Lyndon School collaborated to stage an Enterprise Day for Year 10 students last week.
46 students from Lyndon School took part in the project, aimed at improving their understanding of business and helping them in their future studies and careers. They were welcomed by Assistant Principal Jamie Staddon and given a taster of College life, before attending four workshops with real businesses.
The 40-minute workshops were run by four prominent local firms. The Coventry Building Society took the students through a financial exercise, while the NEC Group were present to talk to the students about their business objectives. A representative from McDonalds and Cineworld Cinemas were also present to lead workshops with the students.
Assistant Principal Jamie Staddon commented:
“We were delighted to host students from our partner school Lyndon and grateful to the staff from the Coventry Building Society, the NEC Group, McDonalds and Cineworld for giving up their time to be part of this project. Staff at Lyndon School organised a very productive day. Hopefully the event has also given students an insight into studying at a sixth form college. We hope many of them will choose to join us in the future.”
The event was organised by an ex-member of staff, Ranjit Samrai, who is now Head of Business at Lyndon School, which is a key partner school to the College and part of the Ninestiles Academy Trust.
