You're Hired

Young entrepreneurs from across Middlesbrough are dipping their toes in the world of work in a brand new and exciting Easter holiday project.

The budding business people will develop their own initiatives and learn new skills when they take part in ‘The Mini Apprentice – You’re Hired’.

The project has been developed in partnership with Healthy Schools, Extended Schools, Middlesbrough Children’s University and local social enterprise Iron Guidance and will be delivered by Apollo Arts.

During the project the young people will:

• Develop and create a range of products that will be sold at the Apprentice ‘Pop Up Shop!’

• Create a range of marketing materials (posters, TV and radio) to advertise their products and explore the best ways to drum up sales

• Discover the importance of product pricing, how to make a profit and put all of their new found skills into practice as they sell their products at the Apprentice ‘Pop Up Shop!’ on Friday, April 13 at 2pm at the East Middlesbrough Enterprise Centre which is situated on the Unity City Academy site in Ormesby Road, Middlesbrough.

Middlesbrough Children’s University Manager Vikki Cameron-Hall said: “The Mini Apprentice is a fantastic opportunity for children to learn the essentials of enterprise and how to become the next big thing in business in a relaxed, safe and friendly environment.

“We would welcome any support from local businesses – they can call in and see what the young people have created and give feedback to our young apprentices.”

Anyone who would like to support the event is asked to contact Vikki Cameron-Hall on 07896 152183

Sessions will run from Tuesday, April 10, to Friday, April 13, from 10am to 3pm at the East Middlesbrough Enterprise Centre next to Unity City Academy in Ormesby Road, Middlesbrough.
