|Women's Enterprise Day|
As part of Women’s Enterprise Day on Wednesday 18th November we invited three women entrepreneurs to come and work with our Year 10 and Year 12 female business students about their experiences and path to success. The purpose of the session was to inspire our young women and challenge them to examine the skills and characteristics needed in order to be a successful entrepreneur. Students were given an opportunity to ask questions and explore different aspects that interested them. We had very positive feedback from our entrepreneurs and the students found it useful and enjoyable ‘networking’ with real business people.
|Year 11 Trip to McVities factory|
|Mr Annett’s BTEC group enjoyed a trip to the McVities Biscuit Factory in Harlesdon on Friday 10th November. This trip was to support them in their understanding of Unit 1 – Exploring Business Purpose. Pictures of the visit will be uploaded here.|
|Year 10 Paddington Academy students have made it to Wembley!|
Westminster Education Business Partnership joined up with Coca Cola to offer an opportunity for 100 schools across London to take part in an exciting business challenge using students enterprise skills. The aim of the project was to help young learners develop skills like problem-solving, financial capability and creativity – skills that we embed throughout their Business and Enterprise curriculum at Paddington Academy. To secure their place at Wembley students had to work in a company structure on an exciting ‘Apprentice-style’ Business challenge.
Six students from Year 10 (Troy, Bokul, Kayleigh, Charlotte, Mona and Musab) secured Paddington Academy one of the 12 places in the final at Wembley Stadium. During the final teams were facilitated by Coca-Cola business representatives in a further challenge. The final was held on Friday 20th November.
