“Our team was over the moon to get recognition for the hard work we have done so far” declared Jay Joshy, Marketing Director.
The students set up their company, Quality Moments, after taking part in a Young Enterprise scheme that enables young people in schools to start their own business for a year. The boys selected several ranges of sweets which would represent their slogan ‘Made with love, affection starts here’, designed the packaging and assembled a stall where they would sell the sweets.
The award event was hosted by Young Enterprise ambassadors, Dom and Tom, at Coventry University, where several teams from different colleges presented their business ideas and products.
Clint, Paul and Jay presented their report about Quality Moments to the three judges and answered questions from the judges and the other teams. Even though they were nervous at first, because they had never experienced speaking in front of such a big audience before, the students managed to do a great presentation and were awarded with the Best Team Programme.
“We felt challenged as our boundaries were pushed, but now we feel we are more confident in speaking in front of a large audience” declared Paul Brown, Sales Director.
Finally, Clint Glover, Managing director, wanted to add that “We felt that the team efforts paid off – as we won an award!”
The Young Enterprise Programme is delivered at Hereward College through the OCR Award or Certificate for Young Enterprise Qualification in our Business Curriculum. For more information or to apply to the course please visit www.hereward.ac.uk
