Business Studies Students visit Imperial College

Some of the A level Business Studies students visited Imperial College to take part in a workshop at their Enterprise Lab, which is where student innovators and entrepreneurs develop new ideas and skills. Students really enjoyed participating in the workshop, which was based around the idea of starting up a new business.

St Charles students were put into teams and were challenged to come up with a business idea that provided a solution to an issue that they might face. Students pitched their teams' ideas to the audience, which included other schools and colleges. The pitches were well thought through and delivered with much enthusiasm.

Students then had the opportunity to speak with entrepreneurs and they were extremely interested and asked many useful questions, making the most of the opportunity presented to them. The visit will help students with their Starting a Small Business course unit and also in their future careers, should they wish to pursue a career in business.
