Young Enterprise Final

It gives me great pleasure to report back on the Sixth Form Young Enterprise team’s great success at this year’s regional final. After an excellent year of meetings, marketing, production, sales and trade fairs the competition reached its conclusion for us at the Exeter Met Office.

There were four awards on the day and ‘Wood On Waves’ scored as follows:

Best Trade Stand – 2nd place
Best Company Report – 2nd place
Best Presentation – 1st place
Overall Winner – 2nd place

Our 2nd place finish means this is where our competition ends, but the team need to be delighted with what they have achieved this year in The Ilfracombe Academy’s first ever venture into the world of Young Enterprise. A special mention to Maya Nardoni and Zebby Meredith who delivered the prize winning presentation and have led the team so well throughout the year. A big thank you also  to Paul Swan and Mark Smith of TDK Lambda and Bishop Fleming respectively, who have proved to be incredible business advisors; the team are forever grateful.

Young Enterprise has proved to be a great experience for the students and I know that the skills they have developed over the year will prove invaluable to their future applications and careers.

I look forward to next year’s competition!

Sixth Form Employability and Enterprise Director
