E-mail Print

Enterprise EventStudents from the Bangor Academy learnt the secrets to creating a positive employment future for themselves last week during the Young Enterprise In-School Masterclass on 24th October 2011.

Students listened to a successful entrepreneur - Steve McIlwrath from Avalon Guitars who passed on some of his entrepreneurial wisdom and left the young people with food for thought.

The workshops, organised by Young Enterprise NI as the next step in its schools programme, are aimed at 14-18 year olds and designed to help students to think about opening their own business as a career option.

The Masterclass workshops help students take what they’ve learned throughout their years at school and apply it to their lives.

During the Masterclass, students learned how to identify the key entrepreneurial skills required to start their own business, including who to approach concerning financial matters and business advice.

Students also participate in a variety of activities and left with their own personal folder to help them make the next step to opening their own business.
