My colleague Mike Cooper, Area Manager West in the Learning Communities Team, who leads on our EBP and enterprise work sent me this...
"Chris, We held the West Yorkshire Social Enterprise Trade Fair semi final at the Bradford Bulls last week as part of the Yorkshire Humber regional programme that we are running sponsored by Young People’s Enterprise Forum (Yorkshire Forward). A team of Y7 pupils from Morley High were runners up in the Best Stand category and a team of Y10 from Bruntcliffe won the top prize for Best Social Enterprise. They will now go forward to meet other schools from around the region at the final on 23rd June
I also attach a photo of the group from CastleHill Special School in Kirklees who were runners up in the best stand and best marketing categories for their solid fuel made from compressed paper.
One of the most rewarding aspects of this work is that students of all ages and abilities can take part and succeed. Regards , Mike"
Mike and his colleagues are doing some great work developing social enterprise work and it is wonderful that Bruntcliffe and Morley will be flying the flag for Leeds.
