Students set up in business

Have your say

ENTERPRISING students have been given help for their business plans.

Two teams from Dearne Advanced Learning Centre in Goldthorpe have been lent £25 and the expertise of local business experts.

Marina Wood, from Dragonfly Public Relations, based in the Dearne Valley, is working with a girls’ team named Bubble Bombs, while Mike Brook, from Brook Corporate Developments, in Barnsley, is assisting a boys’ team, JKH.

The girls have already taken orders worth over £30 at their school’s Christmas fair. The team are now concentrating on developing a career and are creating a ‘stylish’ brand, creating seasonal and themed products and marketing. JKJ are making comic-themed desk tidies. They are aiming to sell their product the office market.
