Coleg Cambria students return to college with an award for creativity.

Four students studying at Coleg Cambria’s Deeside Sixth recently competed in the Welsh final of the Young Enterprise competition.  The group have already won the North Wales regional final and travelled down to Cardiff to compete and showcase their idea of recycling old LP’s and records.  Products made include clocks, cake stands, bowls and serviette holders along with new products such as a shoulder bag, a fascinator and a small table.

The learners had to produce a business plan, test trade their products and produce a trade stand to showcase their goods.  Following a garden party theme, the enterprise team raised money for the NSPCC, the college’s chosen charity for 2017/18.

In Cardiff the students had to undergo a rigorous interview, a presentation and questions from judges at their trade stand alongside attending sessions given by Big Ideas Wales and The Prince’s Trust.  The students had already met and displayed their idea to Jack Sargent AM, who was extremely impressed with their work.

Whilst the team did not win through to the final, they did win a Young Enterprise Creativity award whilst improving their business skills.

Lynn Williams, Enterprise Champion at Coleg Cambria said:

“We are extremely proud of all four students who competed in the Welsh final of the Young Enterprise competition.  They’ve worked really hard with their new enterprise whilst also raising money for NSPCC.”
