On Tuesday 21st February 2017, TeenWork Cornwall, one of Treviglas’ Young Enterprise teams, were able to meet up with Christine Butler from the BBC and talk about their new business. They were given the opportunity to travel to Old MacDonald’s Farm to have a one- on -one interview about their future career. The owners of the farm also gave them information on job types within the farm.
Afterwards the students visited Mawgan Porth beach. It was windy and cold, but filming was done quickly and some group photos were taken. Mrs Bissenden was interviewed about the project for BBC radio.
Later, a representative from the board of Young Enterprise come in to talk to the group about how to improve and develop our business through thinking professionally. The day ended with the students designing a new customised jumper and their own logo.
“I found it great fun and enjoyable, but also exciting, knowing that more people will know about what we are doing,” commented Jemima Wallace.
Maxx Nichols added, “I thought it was a unique experience and hope to do it again.”
“It was really entertaining and insightful, it has shown us a lot about the film industry,” concluded Lori Chappell.
Mrs. Hayley Bissenden, business teacher at the college, said, “This was such a great opportunity for TeenWork Cornwall to experience what it’s like to operate as a real business, whilst gaining some very valuable PR. They are working so hard to make this business a success and I am confident that they have created a competitive and valuable concept.”
