The ‘Big Idea’ College wide Enterprise Competition is back and it is bigger and better than ever. This ‘Dragons’ Den’ style Enterprise challenge is designed to reward Wirral Met College students for developing new and innovative ideas.

To create a bit of harmless competitive spirit all Directorate areas nominated one team to represent them in this college wide event. Students were asked to form a team, develop a business idea and pitch to a panel of ‘Dragons’.

Students had to impress an expert panel to scoop the £100 prize and walk away with the ‘Enterprise Champion’ Trophy.

In line with the college mission, enterprise challenges like this can enhance the economic prosperity of young people and adults. Wirral Met College passionately believe that students who engage in such activities develop a multitude of employability and personal skills which can help bridge the gap between the world of work and college.

Enterprise activities are relevant to all our students for the following reasons;-

• Entrepreneurial individuals make for better employees

• Develops Personal Finance capabilities

• Raise Aspiration

• Reinforce Literacy, Maths and ICT

• Develops a positive ‘Can do attitude’.

The panel on the evening were, Sue Higginson – Principal WMC,  Diane Fitch – Director of Business & Enterprise, Sarah Hanlon – College Manager Enterprise and Samantha Jones – NACUE (The National Association of Colleges & University Entrepreneurs).

The Winning Team.
Tutor Neil Campbell – Carpentry and Joinery, and students ‘Three Men and a Baby’,  Martin Woods, Lewis Wilkinson and Ross Cornell.

The Winning Product.
The Undetec-Table – A space saving foldaway picnic style bench, quick and easy to set up and easy and convenient to store on a wall or even garden fence posts.
