Mansfield & Ashfield 2020 together we mean business
View the short film showcasing the young people in action on the Mansfield market and highlights from the awards event:
Berni Dickinson, of the Mansfield Area Partnership, said ‘I’m so proud of all the students who have taken part in this year’s competition, and I’m really grateful to the teachers, judges and sponsors that helped to make it happen! This is all about building connections between young people and businesses to help equip them with the skills they need in the future labour market.’
The challenge saw students create their own business from scratch, and then sell their products to the general public on Mansfield Market. Their achievements were celebrated at the awards evening, where teams were named winners in a number of categories including Best Product, Best Team Working, Entrepreneurial Spirit and Overall Winner. The team that took to trophy for the overall winner were Apollo from Kirkby College.
The competition also included primary students from Forest Town Primary, who received well deserved recognition after taking part in the Garibaldi Primary Enterprise Competition.
Malcolm, who also delivered a motivational speech on the night, said ‘This is a great opportunity for young people to realise their potential and get thinking about business. Not all youngsters will go on to work for themselves, but it’s important for them to know that they’ve all got the right to aspire.’
Ian Greenaway, Employability Champion for the D2N2 Skills and Employment Commission, attended the event and said, ‘Mansfield has always had a good reputation for engaging businesses and schools and this is just another example of the great work they do. We have collaborated with Berni Dickinson on our employability framework, utilising her skills and wealth of knowledge to try and help spread events like this across the LEP area.’
