Eastleigh College Business Administration students have pitched their innovative ideas to Braishfield Pantry in a bid to boost profits and attract new customers.
After a recent visit to the organisation to understand their needs, students worked in small teams to research, develop and present their business plans to benefit the charitable organisation.
One particular group worked with their team to develop a range of ‘night in’ bundles, in addition to bespoke party packages offering customers a range of products for any occasion. Working with a local organisation has helped embed the students’ learning by enabling them to apply their skills to a real-world scenario, which in turn will help the transition from College to employment.
Level 3 Business Administration student Laura, is keen to progress into business management for her future career and highlights how the project has prepared her. “It has given me an idea on what to expect when pitching ideas to business managers, developed my teamwork skills and has been very informative in teaching me about profitability.”
Eastleigh College offers a range of professional and technical courses which enhance transferrable skills including confidence in the workplace. Joanne Landon, Business Administration Course Manager at Eastleigh College explains, “It was an exciting opportunity to build on the students’ skills and ideas they have developed in class, and for the students to grow in confidence and enhance their communication skills, which will support them in their future working environment.”
