Market Challenge Helps Students Develop New Skills
12th June 2014
Some of our students put their new-found skills to the test in a market stall at Stockton Riverside College.
The Transition to FE class sold chocolate, seed bombs and soaps, as part of the entrepreneurial task which helped them to develop skills such as working as a team, money handling and planning.
The young people from Sheraton are studying a Transition to FE course at Stockton Riverside College, as they prepare to make the move to the college.
For the market stall project the group has been working with MyBank, a charity that helps young people understand how money works and offers enterprise experiences, with programmes delivered by Thornaby-based charity, Five Lamps.
Selling products from the stall situated in the foyer of Riverside's Teesdale campus Jordan Cassidy, said, "I have really enjoyed it. It has been a lot of fun and we have worked well as a team.
Jake Wilkinson, added, "it has been splendid and we have sold a lot"
