Future Business Magnates (FBM) 2017-2018

Over the last decade Business Durham have organised an Enterprise competition which is open to all schools within the Durham area.  We are pleased to announce that we have entered a Year 8 team for this year’s competition.

The aim of the competition is to deliver an understanding of enterprise, creativity and all of the key skills needed to build a business. Schools are encouraged to create new innovative ideas and to help students gain confidence in presenting a finished product or idea.

Our team are very enthusiastic and are looking forward to the forthcoming challenges as well as working with our business partners, CDC Enterprise Agency. Students  have already started investigating a number of ideas to enter into the competition and are keen to develop one of them further as an innovative business venture.

To date the FBM team have attended Challenge 1 and received third place for their team work.

Team members are: Kaite Waites, Katie Swift, Emma Parkin, Andrew Howe, Anna Campbell, Samuel Green, Lewis Willoughby and Declan Eccles.

The Academy would like to wish our team good luck for the future challenge days and are proud to say they represent Consett Academy.
