Pupils in Remove prepared a Franchise Fair in order to persuade potential investors to purchase a franchise agreement with them. Pupils acted as franchisors engaging and enticing their clients. Franchise firms ranged from a fish restaurant to a bakery and healthy drinks enterprise. Food and drink was most definitely the theme of the day. Pupils developed their presentation, promotion and teamwork skills in order to develop a holistic and wide-reaching initiative.
Collaboration across Business Studies and Economics allows students to develop flexible, transferable and multiple skills. Team teaching allows for wider perspectives, opinions and value judgements. This is a key focus/theme for the Department this year and follows on from a Collusive Oligopoly Game last week with the Upper Sixth IB Students.
