Coca-Cola Enterprise Challenge Finals

Miss Quaye from the Business Studies Department sent us the following report:

“The Real Business Challenge is an exciting enterprise competition for students, it challenges them to tackle a business task set by Coca-Cola European Partners. It is work-related learning at its most engaging and an opportunity for a whole year group to develop enterprise skills, which will give them a competitive edge in today's job market. All Year 9 Business Students from Invicta participated in the challenge at the start of the academic year. Groups presented their proposals, and a winning Invicta team was declared. Then there was a short wait as the entry was submitted to Coca-Cola. At the beginning of December, we received word that our team had beaten 134 other schools and made it to the South Eastern Regional Finals in Brighton.

On Tuesday, 24 January, Team CEO Holly Rogers, Lili Morson, Rachel Peal, Hannah Odutola and Charlotte Nicholson along with Miss Quaye, (and Mr Perry - minibus driver extraordinaire) made their way to the AMEX Stadium in Brighton, to compete against 10 other schools in an attempt to win a trophy and a very exciting £1000 prize!

On arrival students were allocated a business mentor, a senior employee of Coca-Cola European Partners. Our mentor was Paul.

The challenge was set. Teams had to produce a Radio Advertisement recorded in the onsite recording studio, A Bus Stop Poster and A Proposal for a Fundraising Event, all to promote Special Olympics Great Britain which is being held in Sheffield this summer. The time limit? 4 hours!!

Once all of the deadlines had been met, the adverts produced and recorded and the work submitted, it was time to present. Holly, Lili and Rachel presented their proposals with confidence and enthusiasm and had the added pressure of being the team to go first. The team worked incredibly hard and were praised for their enthusiasm, professionalism and smart uniforms! In this instance, we were not placed, although it was a close call between the 10 final schools.

Everyone in the team agreed that they immensely enjoyed the whole experience and had learnt lots of new skills. All five girls were awarded with certificates, and lots of Haribo from the Business Department!  Well done girls!
