Trafford Centre Visit

On Thursday 12 December a group of year 11 students spent the day at the Trafford Centre in Manchester as part of their BTEC business studies course.

The 14 budding businessmen undertook a series of observations in order to understand the different audiences that use a retailer of their choice. They also investigated direct competitors whilst they were there.

The students will use this experience and research in class when coming up with an idea for their own business outlining their products, marketing strategies and who they'll be targeting.

Their teacher Mrs Bidwell said: "The boys us proud whilst on the trip, they targeted the right businesses and gathered very valuable information. They gained great insights into the market their start-ups are aimed at."
