The National Enterprise Challenge
Year 10 and 11 Business students of The Bromfords School and Sixth Form College have been taking part in the National Enterprise Challenge. Students studying Business and Economics were given the challenge of designing a new range of flip-flops for the rapidly growing social enterprise Gandys Flipflops, and presented their new design to a panel of judges.
The winning group consisted of Year 10 students, Anu Faniyi, Elizabeth Fayehun, Mia Griffin, Frankie Stone, Kaylum Bennett and Chris Allen (photo attached). They designed the Ghandi â€˜Animalâ€™ flip flops that were inspired by the Indian Tsunami and sadly the death of the Ghandi brothers parents in the Tsunami. Students brain stormed on logos, branding, advertising and promotional strategies.
The winning team will now present their new design in the Nationals being held in London in July and will pitch their idea to the famous â€˜Dragonâ€™ Theo Paphitis.
