Teenagers had the chance to develop their entrepreneurial skills at a special course at Wainuiomata High School last week. Year 11 students took part in the Young Enterprise Trust BP Challenge last Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The BP Challenge is a three day learning programme designed to develop skills, connect students to community and build their understanding of how businesses work. Technology teacher at the high school, Simon Croft, said he was pleased with how the students worked together to create products. “It’s actually pretty good. There are some pretty good groups here,” he said. Ideas created by the students included different type of shoes and an iFood app

which would see people able to scan food at the supermarket to see if they already had it in the pantry at home. Young Enterprise Trust roaming teacher, Jane Watson, said the programme was run at 45 to 50 schools across New Zealand a year. “This is the first time we have done the challenge in Wainui. We really enjoy coming here,” she said. Jane said the course was a great opportunity to expose young people to starting up a business and to take part in future Young Enterprise Trust programmes, including the The Lion Foundation Young Enterprise Scheme. “[It’s good to see] how significant their spirit is and their belief in their product. They grow so much in the three day course,” she said.
