BizSchool bring the world of entrepreneurship and business alive for young people using DBS cleared and experienced business people and teachers. BizSchool is all about fun, hard work and ‘learning by doing’, with small teams of 5 or 6 getting an early chance to trade in the intense atmosphere of the 30 minute pop-up market stalls. This is BizSchool’s springboard for learning about business, helping teams to prepare for their competitive pitches to the Bears’ Cave to try to win a £250 investment in their business idea. We deliver real-life application of Maths, English, Accounting, Computing and Art via a series of BizSchool steps which develop students’ hands-on business skills. Students develop self-confidence, team working, a confident hand shake and presentation skills and everybody gets the opportunity to work in the final winning business regardless of ability. We are always impressed by the entrepreneurial flair of young people and passionately believe that the students should share in the success and profits of their final business. Winning ideas have included plate and jam jar painting, water fights and a car wash and café. All our businesses have made a profit, contributing £1000s to charities and paying for many student treats. We also help schools to find a business sponsor to pay for 50% of the course in exchange for a promotional package from BizSchool.
