What is a Business Leader?

A Business Leader sets up and runs their own business for the duration of a school year by taking part in the Young Enterprise Company Programme.


What does being a Business Leader at Liskeard School involve?

Each student in the company is given a specific role, such as the Managing Director, Finance Director or Marketing Director. There are a total of eight director roles per group.

Business Leaders may also be invited to events or meetings about the business aspects of the school.


What commitment do Leaders need to make?

As a minimum, Business Leaders need to attend a one a half hour meeting one day after school each week. However, to run the business successfully, Leaders need to commit a lot of their own time to the business activities. They also need to attend trade fairs which happen throughout the year at weekends.


What qualities would I need to have to be a member?

You will need to have a drive and commitment for completing your own ideas. Business knowledge is not essential as you will learn this over the course of the year. You must also be committed to attending the meetings and completing the tasks of the role given to you.


Which year group do I need to be in to apply?

You need to be in year 10 to be a Business Leader, but you do not need to have chosen GCSE Business Studies as an option subject


How many positions are available?

Anywhere between 5-15 places.


How do I apply?

Instructions about becoming a business leader will be given Year 10 students at the beginning of each school year. If you are interested in applying please speak to Mr. Aird who will tell you more about the programme.
