2021 Plan Your Own Enterprise (PYOE)


Why should students enter the Competition?

Business Planning enables students to see the interconnectedness in business operations allowing them to have an in-depth understanding of business functions. Introducing the Competition as part of your teaching and assessment will provide a real world context for student learning.

In addition the Competition promotes the following skills:
• organisation and planning
• innovation
• decision making
• research and communication
• prioritising and collaborating
• enterprise thinking
• reflection and action.

We encourage you to introduce the Competition as part of your teaching repertoire.
