Apax-Mosaic Enterprise Challenge 2016

Forty four enterprising Business students were selected to take part in the Apax-Mosaic Enterprise Challenge led by Mrs Norbury and Mr Atkinson, together with business mentors from Cummins Turbo Technologies of Huddersfield, Lloyds Banking Group, Fusion IT and Virgin East Coast Trains. This is the second year we have entered this national competition created to foster business and enterprise skills.

Mosaic was founded by HRH the Prince of Wales in 2007 and provides a mentoring programme to create opportunities for young people by linking them with inspirational role models to boost their confidence, self-efficacy and long term employability. Mosaic’s Enterprise Challenge is an inter-school competition which encourages a spirit of entrepreneurship amongst young people.

Our students were entered into the competition in 9 teams of 5 and competed not only against each other but against other schools from the Yorkshire Region by trading in a business simulation game. They had to choose a product, take it to market and sell it completing 3 ‘years’ of trading. The competition also focusses on ethical issues that could affect each of the products.

Last year’s teams were very successful with one ‘superteam’ making it to the Regional Finals in Leeds – so we are hoping to make it to the Regional Finals again in March with our best performing ‘business’ and, even better, to the Grand Final in London where we may win a visit to 10 Downing Street!

Alex Stelfox, Purchasing Engineer from Cummins Inc., was really impressed by the students’ participation and early feedback form the organisers is that the Moor End teams are currently amongst the highest scoring!
